I believe this is a great opportunity to use your photographic skills for the betterment of someone suffering in your community. Nearly 600,000 people in Colorado live with the reality of hunger. Food Bank of the Rockies’ blog, profiles faces of our hungry neighbors. There are SO many more faces and stories that deserve to be seen and told. FBR & Denver Magazine have partnered to give local photography lovers the opportunity to give more faces of hunger visibility and to learn, first-hand, the reality of a problem taking place in our own backyard.
* Photographers, amateur and professional....use your artistic abilities to profile an individual or family struggling with hunger in Colorado and submit your photos and application for judging.
* Only 12% of those served by FBR agencies are homeless. The face of hunger could be your neighbor, your mechanic, a fellow student... Go out and meet real people dealing with hunger. Ask for their story. FBR works with over 700 hunger relief agencies. If you need referrals for locations, let us know.
* Submissions judged by a panel of Channel 2’s Natalie Tysdal, Mayor Hickenlooper, Kevin Seggelke, CEO of Food Bank of the Rockies, professional photographers and Denver Magazine’s CEO & Publisher, Michael Ledwitz.
* Top 50 entries featured at a Fat Tail Gallery event on September 2, 2009. Winning entries under both categories to be featured in Denver Magazine and will receive exclusive prize packages.
