LUCEO Images is an innovative and creative collective that employs and partners with photographers, videographers, and production professionals to meet the needs of their extensive client list. They’re also highly involved in the community – you’ll see them at exhibitions, conferences, speaking engagements, and the like.
Today they’re announcing the 2013 call for entries for the LUCEO Student Project Award, sponsored by PhotoShelter and MAC-ON-CAMPUS. The award is offered each year to a student photographer working to develop a signature body of work. This year’s recipient will receive up to $2,000 in cash and prizes to help fund a photographic project. The winner will also receive a one-year mentorship from LUCEO.
In 2012, LUCEO received 237 entries from 75 different schools from 13 countries. Judges will be announced in the coming month, and will include a variety of industry leaders so students have the opportunity to get their work in front of important influencers.
Deadline for submission is May 15, 2013. To learn more, please visit spa.luceoimages.com.
