t is with much pride I make the following announcement. I was a small part of the judging process for the annual ShootQ Grant and I'm thrilled with the outcome of our decision. There were many amazing entries and the selection process was definitely an exercise in compromise and communication, but at the end of the day, I think we're all proud of the worthy recipient.

The 2010 ShootQ $10,000 Grant Winner is Annie O'Neill!

Theresa McDonald - Congratulations to Annie O'Neill. Upon looking at her winning portfolio it brought a tear to my eyes and an ache in my heart. Her series of photos of Tim Tullis touched me so deeply as I have an autistic son. There have been many times where I have pondered on what the future holds for our family. The rawness of her images are so powerful. Love, care, daily despair, to HOPE, COMPASSION and ACCEPTANCE. Avery worthy recipiant. Thanks for bringing Annie O'Neill's work into my life.  09.23.09 - 3:35pm

nataaha - Im so glad this cause won the grant. I am from the UK and my brother is in the British armed forces. These men and women that risk their lives daily, need to be admired more - and held in higher regard. They witness more in one tour than many of us will in a lifetime.
