Tiffany Tangen, events manager at Wex Photo Video, commented, “Women in the Industry was established as a platform to recognise and celebrate the achievements of female photographers and filmmakers, enabling them to share their experience with those looking to enhance their knowledge and learn new skills and techniques. Its aim was also to create a more inclusive and supportive environment for all in the photographic industry. Feedback from attendees last year was exceptionally positive, so we have decided to make this an annual occurrence, and look forward to another outstanding event in September.”
