Be a Contest Sponsor!
The Board of Directors of the Photographic Guild of Los Gatos Education Foundation would like to introduce you to our Annual Junior Photography Contest and solicit your support. The competition is presently in its 43rd year and is open to all youth under 18 who live in and/or attend high school in the counties of Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, San Benito, Monterey and Santa Cruz. This contest has been enthusiastically supported over the years by civic leaders, businesses, private citizens and the local high school photography instructors who make our contest a class assignment. We receive over 1000 entries each year and distribute cash awards to more than 50 winning entries.
We sponsor this competition as an incentive to encourage the youth of our society to engage in the creative and worthwhile pursuit of photography. Some winners have gone on to careers in this field. Many winners use our cash awards to help further their education.
All monies donated go directly to these cash awards. We know that organizations have many demands on their resources. Any donation would be gratefully appreciated and would enable us to give out more awards or to create additional categories. The PGLG Educational Foundation is a 501C (3) corporation and all donations are tax deductible.
Again, we would appreciate the support of your organization for this youth-based event. If possible, please respond before March 30. A PDF form can be downloaded and should be included with your donation.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
