Generations United Providing Funding for Photography Projects

9/19/2007:   Generations United (GU) is expanding its annual Intergenerational Photography Contest, funded by the MetLife Foundation. For the 2008 contest, GU is providing seed grants of up to $2,000 to five organizations to develop and conduct their own intergenerational photography projects.

GU has held an Intergenerational Photography Contest for seven years aimed at capturing the power and beauty of intergenerational relationships and conveying the important roles that younger and older people play in each other's lives.

"This new project builds on our past work to use the camera as a tool to creatively bridge the generations," says GU Executive Director Donna Butts.

Requests for Proposals and applications for the photography contest are available on GU's website. Applications are due November 1.
