LUCEO Images announces Project Fund and Student Project Fund
As most of you know I am a big fan of the photo collective Luceo Images. Comprised of what I believe to be many of the best of the up and coming generation of photographers, I love watching what this group does next.
Well, what they have done next is to create both a project fund and a student project fund to help their fellow photographers make something happen. This is quite an impressive feat for a group in its infancy, so I encourage everyone to get out there and support their efforts!

LUCEO Announces Creation of the Luceo Images Project Fund and Student Project
United States – January 11, 2010 – LUCEO is united in a common belief that, through these
times of change, the still image continues to be relevant. We believe that history extends
beyond the news-cycle, and that ordinary people and personal struggle are avenues through
which we can explore the bigger issues facing our world. It is with this purpose that we have
created the Luceo Images Project Fund and the Luceo Student Project Award.
Luceo Images Project Fund:
LUCEO believes in actively encouraging the completion of significant personal bodies of
work, which lack funding through mainstream outlets. In pursuit of this goal, Luceo will
contribute a percentage of all editorial, commercial and corporate commissions toward the
Luceo Images Project Fund. This fund exists solely to support the long-term projects of
LUCEO’s member photographers.
Every commission allows our clients to support significant photographic work.
Luceo Student Project Award:
LUCEO also believes that developing photographers need support. To advance this cause,
LUCEO pledges a portion of this fund towards the Luceo Student Project Award. This award
will be 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 along with mentorship for the project from one Luceo
The deadline for receipt of applications is 11:59pm EST May 15, 2010. Finalists will be
announced in late May. A select panel will judge from the ten finalists and the winner will be
announced in June.
