The competition theme is women's empowerment.

Alicia Keys, as in the singer and global creative director of BlackBerry, launched a scholars scheme back in June, which promised to support tech-loving females.

Now, Nokia has now teamed up with the Thomson Reuters Foundation for a global photography content that is designed to empower women.

The challenge was announced at the Trust Women Conference yesterday evening and calls upon creatives and photo-journalists to submit photos demonstrating female leadership such as courage, passion, innovation and and motherhood.

Photos will be voted for by the public and judged by a group of photography, journalism and women's rights experts who are looking to inspire and spark debate.

The ten finalists will be asked to use the Nokia Lumia 1020 and create a portfolio of female empowerment snaps solely from using the WinPho-powered smartphone.

The winner will receive the first Thomson Reuters Foundation–Nokia Photography Award, which includes professional training on mobile journalism, a Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone – obviously –  and more.

Participants can enter the contest via the Thomson Reuters Foundation website, the Thomson Reuters Foundation Facebook page or via Talenthouse.com until February 11th 2014.
