We would like to introduce the seven fantastic curators we have lined up to select their favourite images from those submitted to ‘Women’: a photographic celebration by BPPA members of women across the globe for International Women’s Day 2021 on 8th March. In the launch year of what promises to be a fabulous new exhibition, the BPPA are looking for images telling the stories and achievements

That’s the Mail Online brush-off, saying after publishing Rebecca Reid’s profile picture without either permission or payment, that by making her picture ‘public and discoverable’ she has posted it ‘into the public domain’.
