Photographers make images. Visionaries teach you how to see. The Lucie Foundation is proud to support emerging talent and professionals with vision, with dynamic ideas that challenge and progress the art form of still photography into work that compels.
Through the Lucie Scholarship, a grant of $5,000 will be awarded to a professional photographer at work on a specific, dynamic project, as well as a grant of $2,500 to an emerging professional (student, graduate, or beginning professional) working on a portfolio or a proposed project. The Foundation’s support of photography is broad, from photojournalism to fashion photography, digital to medium format, including every other category and subcategory. Their concern isn’t with genre, but rather to support emerging visionaries producing work that is at once gripping, and original.
Maine Media is partnering with the Lucie Foundation to provide winners with a scholarship to attend a one -week course at in Rockport. Visit the Lucie Foundation for details. The application deadline is January 25, 2010.
