    We are excited to announce the Call for Entries for the 3rd edition of the LUCEO Student Project Award

    Central to LUCEO’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 is disbursed annually to a talented student photographer in support of a significant and developing body of work.

    This year’s recipient will receive $1,000 and mentorship for the project from one LUCEO member for a year among other yet-to-be-announced perks. One of the ten finalists will receive an assignment from AARP Bulletin.

    Finalists will be announced in late May. A select panel of judges presided over by moderator Michael Wichita, Interim Director of Photography for AARP, will narrow the decision to one winner who will be announced during LOOK3: The Festival of the Photograph.

    The deadline for receipt of your application is 11:59pm EST May 10, 2012 has been extended to 11:59pm EST, Tuesday, May 15, 2012.

    The 2011 recipient of the LUCEO Student Project Award was Maddie McGarvey.

    The 2010 recipient of the LUCEO Student Project Award was Masud alam Liton.
