The power of imaging is never more apparent than when it is used to help those in need.
The Imaging Alliance is proud to salute three professional photographers and one student photographer who have used their talents and passions to give back and heighten awareness through the power of imaging.
The 3rd annual event will feature presentations by honorees Brooke Shaden, Stephanie Sinclair and Jerry Ghionis followed by a short Q&A from the audience. After the theatre portion of the evening, all in attendance will be invited to the networking cocktail reception in the lobby.
In addition, one SVA student who has demonstrated their use of photography to educate and create awareness will be awarded the Anthony M. Ruotolo Photojournalism Award.
Registration is Required and Tickets are $25 each (proceeds will go to charity)
