Central to LUCEO’s mission is our belief in the importance of long-term projects. We also understand that developing photographers need support. To advance both of these causes, LUCEO has created the LUCEO Student Project Award, which will be disbursed annually to a talented student photographer in support of a significant and developing body of work.
This year’s recipient will receive $1,000 and receive mentorship for the project from one LUCEO member.
Finalists will be announced in late May. A select panel of three judges presided over by moderator Michael Wichita, Director of Photography for AARP Bulletin, will narrow the decision to one winner who will be announced during LOOK3: The Festival of the Photograph.
The deadline for receipt of your application is 11:59pm EST May 15, 2011.
