Photography Tour Nets 95 Applicants


The Images for Conservation Fund's Pro-Tour of Nature Photography has received applications from 95 landowners who would like to participate in the event, scheduled for next April in the Texas Hill Country.

The Pro-Tour, which will match nature photographers with private landowners, seeks to foster greater wildlife conservation through the promotion of photo tourism income for private landowners (see PhotoMedia, Summer 2004, p. 34). The landowner applicant pool will be narrowed from 95 applicants to 20 finalists, who will be matched with the 20 professional wildlife photographers already selected for the event.

The teams will compete for a share of up to $200,000, and landowners will receive copies of their teams' portfolios.
