ShootQ Grant

oday is a gorgeous. Like the kind of days when you roll down your car window and deeply inhale. Sea air, freshly cut grass, and a splash of car exhaust…ahhh, nothing like life in Orange County! ;)

I’m sure plenty of my blog readers are familiar with the Shoot Q Grant, but for those of you who are not, you MUST take the time to check it out! There isn’t any other grant out there for photographers as amazing as this and I am SO incredibly honored to be a part of this project. Joe Buissink, Dawn Davis, Greg Gibson, Laura Novak, and myself are judges for this fabulous grant and I couldn’t be more excited!

If this $10,000 grant sounds like something that may benefit you—or someone you know—be sure to the CHECK IT OUT! I look forward to hearing your stories and getting to know you better through this amazing process!

Happy Monday!

I have already downloaded my application! I cannot wait. My cause is something so near and dear to my heart and I hope through this I can share it with the world! Thanks for the inspiration, I am a big fan! We share similar backgrounds, only, I just made it to the LSAT and cried:)  04.01.08 - 11:59am

chris - Jasmine, thanks for bringing up this grant. I, too, am working on a project that is aimed at raising awareness about child abuse and just celebrating childhood in general. It's called PROJECT CHILDHOOD, and I'm trying to get every photographer around the world to take part. It actually starts in two days! I'm so excited.  03.31.08 - 11:41pm

wac - we had snow in colorado today. i guess the OC is the place to be, huh? and, i too, am bummed that i'm not eligable for this grant because i have enough ideas to fill a notebook...or three.  03.31.08 - 4:37pm
kymberli q. - I'm bummed because I'm not yet eligible and I know exactly what I would present to the judges. :( But... this is such a wonderful idea for those who are eligible. Great, great stuff!  03.31.08 - 3:00pm
Sara - I will absolutely trade your sea air and freshly cut grass for the 5 inches of snow we're suppose to get throughout the day. Mother Nature's April Fool's joke? I'm ready for the beach.   03.31.08 - 2:21pm
