“Flowers have an expression of countenance, as much as men and animals. Some seem to smile, some have a sad expression” -Harriet Beecher Stowe. ViewBug has announced a new photography contest, “1 Million Faces of Sunflowers,” to show the beauty, happiness, and uniqueness of the Sunflower.
ViewBug, a top sharing, photography contest and social networking photography site has partnered with Field for Hope, a non-profit organization helping people with depression, to help shed light on the 121 million suffering from the condition. Field for Hope’s mission is to eradicate the stigma of depression and show that it is 100% treatable. Every dollar donated equals 1 seed to help an online hotline, healing gardens, international support groups and more. This contest strives to help create awareness of their mission and give hope to those that are growing.
Michelle Tricca, an award winning portrait and lifestyle photographer, will be judging the contest.
