Let’s celebrate women’s right to loiter, to explore, to look, to work, to just be outdoors. Join Women’s Web on this photography contest, Beyond The Doors 2018, in the run-up to International Women’s Day this year.
Good girls stay at home.” Err, no. Why should boys have all the fun? No matter what some killjoys may think, women are indeed going out – whether to work, or hanging out with our friends, looking at sunsets, sitting solo in the park, going to a new city….or anything else at all that the world outdoors calls us for.
For the third year now, a reader favourite, Beyond The Doors is our photography contest and it’s all about celebrating the lives of Indian women outside the home.
Send us your most interesting photos of women outside the home. This could be photos taken in any space – whether the beach, a street, a field, a market or anything. You must be the photographer yourself (please don’t send us pictures taken by anyone else).
The subject of these photographs can be anything so long as it features at least one woman, in a recognisably outdoor space. So feel free to send us pics of your friends on a trek, or women at an outdoor market, or anything else at all.
Let’s create a wonderful online exhibit of women living life…freely!
Email us your pic at firstname.lastname@example.org in jpeg/PNG format. Mention ‘Beyond The Doors’ in your subject line. Make sure to mention your full name, and a line about where the image was taken.
Last date for entries: 10 PM IST, 20th February, 2018

Linger vacations are a journey of passion we’ve set out on. This was born of a dream to make vacations fun again. To rekindle the curiosity you once had. To be not prepared but to be surprised. A few days of connecting with the places you go to and people you meet, as they are, not as they are imagined and planned to be. To do things slowly that you have little time for in life. To discover the joys of taking it as it comes, and doing nothing.
