Tell us, what do you see?
Yesterday, the What I See team took to Oxford Street to find out what women see when they look in the mirror.
We really enjoyed meeting the lovely ladies who stopped to chat to us. Many joked about their appearance, some liked theirs, but all of them were honest.
What struck me most was seeing people take in what our sign said and then mouth the question back to themselves with a look of complexity.
Here’s a selection of the reflections we had:
Would you like to win £500 for telling an amazing story?
The What I See Project is launching the What Do You See? Travel Competition for people over 18 to contribute words and photos or videos from their travels, telling the stories of fascinating women that they meet along the way by asking them “What do you see in the mirror?”
We’re looking for a minimum of two submissions over the summer. We’re offering a prize of £500 for the most outstanding submission, with £250 each for two runners-up. The top ten finalists will also be invited to a networking event in London where they’ll get the chance to meet our Features Ambassadors, the inspiring and powerful women who have backed the What I See Project.
Work that catches our eye will be published on our website and will prove a great addition to any CV. The closing date for entries is the end of September. The winner of the competition will be announced at the start of October. All candidates must ensure each woman they profile completes a consent form, which should be returned to us.
