Freshman Nickolas Warner of Papillion, Nebraska has been named the 2019 Janie Moore Greene Grant recipient. He is beginning his undergraduate studies in photography at Arizona State University.
Warner’s interest in photography was amplified after a trip to Malaysian Borneo where he first got to visit some of the locations he’d been studying through National Geographic throughout his childhood. He was struck by the condition of the rainforests when he got there. The trip inspired him to hone his photography skills to help show the world not only the beauty of what needs protection, but also what happens when nature isn’t protected.
The Janie Moore Greene Grant is a $1,000 award given annually by the NANPA Foundation through the generosity of Janie Moore Greene to a student currently enrolled in, or who has been accepted to, an institution of higher education specializing in the study of photography.
Information about how to apply for the next award will posted on the website in late summer on the NANPA Foundation website.
