The Lit List—a merit-based list of 25 photographers to watch, exhibit, and hire—is committed to recognizing the outstanding work of womxn, non-binary, transgender, or gender-expansive people of color, and artists, who have been otherwise under-supported or under-resourced, by the visual media industry.

Nominations came from photographers, photo editors, reps, and art and creative directors. The jury consisted of industry decision-makers of color and co-conspirators, who demonstrated, through their hiring practices or work, a commitment to industry equity, inclusivity, and parity.

    The Authority Collective

    The Authority Collective is a group of womxn, non-binary, and gender expansive people of color, reclaiming our authority in lens-based visual media. As professionals in the photography, film, and VR/AR industries, our mission is to empower artists with resources and community, and to take action against systemic and individual abuses, in the world of lens-based visual work. Our goal is to remove barriers to access for BIPOC entering editorial, journalism, documentary, commercial, and fine art careers.

    The Authority Collective connects our community members with job, mentorship, networking, and professional development resources. We look to shift the power dynamic in traditional and independent media, so that the stories we tell, represent the true diversity of our world. We are establishing our power, to set standards that challenge colonial narratives, and the notions of success.
