Central to LUCEOâ€™s mission is our belief in the importance of long-term projects. We also understand that developing photographers need support. To advance both of these causes, LUCEO has created the Luceo Student Project Award, which will be disbursed annually to a talented student photographer in support of a significant and developing body of work.
This yearâ€™s recipient will receive $1,000 along with mentorship for the project from one LUCEO member.
Finalists will be announced in late May. A select panel will judge from the ten finalists and the winner will be announced in June.
Eligible applicants will be currently enrolled in an accredited photography program and should have less than three (3) years of professional experience.
