Through intimate conversations that dive deep on critical issues of the day, our annual benefit spotlights a broad range of voices and raises critical funding for ICP’s education and exhibition programs.

Spotlights 2022 will honor Zanele Muholi, who will be in conversation with Thelma Golden. For more information, please visit the Spotlights 2022 event page.

Founded in 2012, ICP Spotlights has spent ten years celebrating the immense talent of women imagemakers influencing the world of photography and visual culture. In its second decade and beyond, ICP Spotlights continues to make space for conversations regarding gender diversity in the field of photography. Though in the past ICP Spotlights has primarily supported women imagemakers, the ICP Spotlights Committee now looks to a more gender expansive community of imagemakers when determining the honoree of this prestigious award. ICP looks forward to celebrating women, non-binary, trans, intersex, and other gender expansive imagemakers at ICP Spotlights.
