Young Photographer's Alliance 2011 Awards Ceremony & Benefit Auction

YPA Scholarships Program
YPA Scholarships allow young people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to realize their artistic dreams and give back to their communities. To foster social and environmental responsibility in the photographers of tomorrow, scholarship recipients are selected not only for their ability and their need, but also for their demonstrated commitment to giving back to the larger community through their work.

This year’s Awards Ceremony and Benefit Auction will be held at the Calumet Gallery, New York, from 7pm to 10pm on Wednesday, October 19th.
  • Location: Calumet Gallery, 22 W. 22nd Street | New York, NY 10010
  • Date: Wednesday, October 19th, 2011
  • Time: 7pm-10pm
The Awards Ceremony and Benefit Auction is YPA’s principal fundraising vehicle. The event is open to all and is a unique opportunity to meet leading players in the photography and stock image business, and to enjoy – and possibly acquire – some stunning photography, while celebrating and supporting young talent. Tickets cost $50 (or $75 at the door).
