Our trio of talented and accomplished WOMEX photographers was once again on hand to capture all the highlights of WOMEX 17: exchanges at the Trade Fair; enthralling showcase performances; lively conference sessions; and more.
They also post their WOMEX photos to their individual sites – should you be on the lookout for photos, please contact them directly to discuss terms.
A selection of their photos will also be made available in medium size on the WOMEX Flickr page under a CC-BY Creative Commons license, meaning the photos can be distributed free of charge so long as the photographer is credited for the image each time.
