Do you know a student or school who deserves a camera kit that will help them discover the joys of photography? Here's how to nominate them to take part in this massive giveaway.
Jared Polin is giving away an incredible $92,000 in photography equipment in partnership with Canon, ThinkTank, and ProGrade. The initiative, Fund-A-Photographer, was started by Polin in an effort to give students and schools the creative tools to explore the joys and benefits of photography by equipping them with complete kits that include a camera, lens, memory card, bag, and access to education. The idea first came to Polin years ago, but he was recently moved to action after hearing how his first high school photography teacher was forced to personally fund camera kits for his class. He sent an email to Canon, who quickly jumped on board by offering 50 cameras and lenses.
Polin hopes to continue the program into the future to help bring the many benefits of photography to students. Be sure to take the time to nominate a school or student you think deserves a kit.
