Get your cameras out, ladies—the Qulliit Nunavut Status of Women Council has launched a photo contest for women photographers in the territory.

As part of International Women’s Day 2017, the organization is celebrating women’s traditional clothing around the world with a photo contest.

For example, the photos could show:

• amauti;
• footwear;
• hats and other headwear;
• special event clothing;
• dance costumes;
• uniforms; and
• national dress.

The contest’s first prize winner will take home $1,000; second prize is $500; and third prize is $250.

Selected photos will also be exhibited at the Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum in Iqaluit from March 8 to March 17.

You can find applications on Qulliit’s website here.

An earlier version of the story reported that Qulliit is looking for photos of Inuit clothing for their photo contest. However, photos of clothing from around the world are eligible.
