The New Orleans Photo Alliance has, for the past ten years, brought us significant cultural events like the annual photography festival PhotoNOLA and has awarded thousands of dollars in grants to emerging and established photographers through the annual Michael P. Smith Grant and Clarence John Laughlin Award.
This December, it will sponsor the 10th annual PhotoNOLA festival, an event rapidly becoming one of the major photography festivals of the South, and of the nation.
Now, the good folks at NOPA want to continue development of the organization of the Alliance by hiring an Executive Director to provide leadership for the organization as it moves into the second decade of its existence.
Thanks to a generous patron, NOPA has the chance to do this. But they need our help.
The patron will match donated funds, dollar for dollar, up to a total gift of $25,000, if NOPA can raise $25,000 by July 15th.
This will enable NOPA to hire a full time Executive Director, but to do this, they need us to help them raise $25,000.
If you go here, you can help the New Orleans Photo Alliance reach its goal.
Only six days left, as the button on NOPA's form says, to "Double My Donation."
Whatever you can give, you can double your money. I've responded, and I strongly encourage you to join me in helping them out.
