ECM partners with Colors of Life

Every Child Matters is proud to announce that we have partnered with Colors of Life, another 501(c)(3) organization, to promote the fifth annual international photo contest, this time entitled “Every Child Matters.” Preferred subjects for photographs submitted are those related to the issues focused on by Every Child Matters, i.e. child health, education, child poverty, and the prevention of child abuse and neglect.  The goal of this year’s competition is to produce a documentary-style exhibition from the 30 finalist photographs that will be utilized by Every Child Matters in exhibitions and other events to call attention to its efforts on behalf of children.

Colors of Life will be accepting photos from now through June 30, 2011, from which 30 finalists will be selected. The three winning photographs, judged by Ann M. Shumard, Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, will win $1,500, $1,000 and $500 respectively.
