CALL FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS
Piper Trust is seeking talented Arizona photographers to take images of Maricopa County nonprofit agencies as part of a community photography project.
Fifteen photographers will be selected by an Advisory Committee (museum photography curator, graphic designer and photography educator) based on the review of special portfolios submitted to Piper Trust.
The project goal is to create photographs that the agencies can use in telling their stories in online and print publications.
An exhibition at Burton-Barr Central Library
, Phoenix, featuring approximately 40 photographs from the project, will open in October 2010, followed by a tour of four additional Valley arts venues in 2011.
