On 8 March 2021, camera Leica announced the recipients of its second, annual Leica Women Foto Project Award. Founded in 1869 by Ernst Leitz, Leica is a German company that manufactures cameras, lenses, binoculars, rifle scopes, microscopes and ophthalmic lenses. 

In 2019 the company established the Leica Women Foto Project as a way of committing to a story telling that is not only diverse, but uses photography to empower the femme point of view. Through this project women in photography are encouraged to reframe how we see, think and express our visual narratives.
