Call for Entries: LUCEO Student Project Award

Posted by on March 29, 2012 | Student Photography

As recently reported on PDNPulse, the LUCEO Images photo collective have announced a call for entries for their third annual Student Project Award, which awards a full-time graduate or undergraduate student $1,000 to be used in the completion of a long-term photography project.

The winner will be selected by a panel of judges led by AARP director of photography Michael Wichita and announced in June at LOOK3: Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, VA. The winning student will also benefit from a one-year mentorship with a LUCEO member of the student's choice. 

Masud alma Liton, a Bangladeshi student, won the inaugural student project award in 2010 for his project on sex workers in Bangladesh, and Ohio University student Maddie McGarvey won the 2011 award for her project about grandparents raising their grandchildren.

Applications are due by midnight on May 10. For more information and to apply, visit the LUCEO Student Project Award site. And for a sense of what an award-winning project looks like, click here for an informative Q&A with McGarvey's about her work.
