2012 PhotoPhilanthropy Activist Awards

PhotoPhilanthropy, an organization that promotes social change and charitable work by supporting collaboration between photographers and not for profit organizations, is now accepting submissions for its annual Activist Awards. Honoring professional, student, and amateur photographers, PhotoPhilanthropy will showcase accepted work on their website and offer finalist prizes ranging from $2,000 - $15,000.

Last year’s professional grand prize winner was Inge Kathleen, for her project 90 Days, on behalf of The International Center of Bowling Green.

90 Days is a story of a Burmese refugee family of six, two parents and four young boys. In January of 2009, they traveled from a Thai refugee camp to resettle in Bowling Green, Kentucky…
In the United States, refugee resettlement agencies help refugees during their first 90 days in the country to find employment, start learning English, enroll their children in school and begin to acclimate to American society. But on day 91, the agency has no further obligation to them and the family is expected to be self-sufficient. This seems almost unfathomable, but it is estimated that 80,000 refugees will accept this challenge this year, 500 of whom who also will resettle in Bowling Green.

To see more from 90 Days, visit Inge Kathleen’s website.

Entries to the Activist Awards are due by November 1. To find out more about submission guidelines, visit photophilanthropy.org.
