Attention, pro bono photographers!
Our friends at PhotoPhilanthropy are hosting the 2010 Activist Awards to promote photography as a tool “to inspire hope and understanding and to connect people around the world.” Here’s the promotion from their Web site:
“The PhotoPhilanthropy Activist Award identifies outstanding work done by photographers in collaboration with non-profit organizations worldwide and awards prizes ranging from $1,000-$15,000. In our first year, over 200 photographers from 63 different countries submitted work.
This year, PhotoPhilanthropy will be honoring professional, amateur, and student photographers, and a new category for community-based organizations. Each photographer whose work is accepted receives a page on our website and exposure to a growing audience of concerned and committed global citizens.”
This is a great opportunity for our pro bono photographers to showcase their work, bring a little extra attention to our beloved nonprofit organizations, and maybe win some cash along the way. Click to enter your submission at the PhotoPhilanthropy Web site.
