I've been pretty bad about keeping this journal updated... sigh. I miss this outlet. I keep telling myself to get back into it and I WILL, DANG IT! But for now, I just wanted to post about this:
Last month I submitted five photographs to a Deaf Canadian art competition run by the Deaf Culture Centre. Four photographs were accepted and one won Best of Show in photography/painting! Out of all the submissions, 11 artists were selected - I'm the only one from British Columbia. The opening night is on May 10th in Toronto, where I will be given a Best of Show award. After the show, my photographs will remain in the gallery for a year. I'm incredibly honoured and feel as if I've made some progress with my goal of becoming more involved in the Deaf community as a photographer. One catch, I don't really have the funds for all this and I need your help!
I've created a fundraising page and would appreciate it so much if you could share this with your friends & family via facebook, tumblr, your blog... whatever works for you and/or donating some money if you're able to! I also created this video for the fundraising page... have a look and then check out my page for more info!
