Award recognizes those studying photography in higher education.
Michelle A. Butler of Middletown, Delaware, has been chosen as the recipient of the 2015 Janie Moore Greene Scholarship Grant. She is completing her master’s of fine arts degree from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
Ms. Butler is working on a photo-documentary thesis project to raise awareness about the condition of birds in the Americas. It highlights the habitats needed for nesting, wintering and migration and calls for conservation efforts that citizens can make to help protect these essential components to our ecosystem.
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.
Applications for the 2016 award will be accepted beginning in late summer. For more information and updates, visit the NANPA Foundation website.
