Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 20, 2010
ShootQ today calls on photographers to submit their entries for its expanded, annual $12,000 grant program. The ShootQ Grant is in its second year, and the inaugural grant was awarded to photojournalist Annie O’Neill for her project called "To Heal a Soldier's Heart."
“We are grateful for the inspiring, insightful work photographers continue to create through the ShootQ grant program. We proudly support photographers who use imagery to promote positive change in our world," said Rachel LaCour Niesen, ShootQ Co-Founder and VP of Marketing.
The ShootQ Grant was established in 2008 to empower photographers to invest time working on projects that raise awareness about important issues. More than a monetary award, the ShootQ Grant provides photographers with the opportunity to work on a meaningful project with the creative freedom and financial support necessary to produce photographs that raise public awareness about important social, environmental and economic issues. Photographers wishing to submit for the 2010 ShootQ Grant can visit http://www.grant.shootq.com for details.
“The ShootQ Grant is one of the great ways that ShootQ supports photographers in their work, no matter where their passion takes them," said Simon Anderson, Chief Marketing Officer of Pictage. "Pictage is delighted to support the expansion of the grant to $12,000 in 2010.”
