What determines, for this situation, whether one is a woman or not? Things are not always as clear cut as we would like them to be. Is this just a matter of self-definition?

Does anyone know of a “men only” photo award?

Though not true of those who have posted above, sexual ambiguity is a significant problem. “An intersex individual may have biological characteristics of both the male and female sexes.” [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intersex] It is something that the proponents of a contest that is limited to participants based on their sex should be aware of.
