Deadline 15th May

Luceo has called for student photographers to apply for its second annual Luceo Student Project Award, which comes with a $1000 grant to go for the completion of a project

Full-time students from undergraduate and graduate programs can participate. The winner will be selected from ten finalists at the LOOK3 festival in Charlottesville, Virginia. Michael Wichita, director of photography at AARP Bulletin, will chair the judging panel.

The winner will receive $1000 “to go towards completion of their project as well as mentorship with the project for the duration of the year from one Luceo member,” says the cooperative

Last year, the award went to Masud alam Liton, a student of Pathshala South Asian Media Academy in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He won for his work on sex workers in Douladia Ghat, Rajbari, Bangladesh, which “focused on the question of what freedom means in the context of class, tradition and the internecine workings of the commercial sex industry in his home country.”

The deadline for entry is 15 May. For more details, visit luceoimages.com

Tom Clarke has made the suggestion that this software should be taught on the MSc Biological Photography and imaging as part of the video module, I have never used this software; it would be good to get some kind of feedback on this application.
