The Young Photographers Alliance is capping off six years as a nonprofit foundation with its biggest event to date. Our 2014 Fundraising Gala will be held at the beautiful Morgan Library and Museum in New York City on the evening of Wednesday, November 5, 2014
We will have an exhibit featuring the works of several of our young emerging photographers, including past mentees and scholarship winners, many of whom will be in attendance. Well known Honorary Photographers will meet and greet all attendees.
We are proud to be presenting our first Lifetime Achievement Award to internationally acclaimed photographer David LaChapelle who will be in attendance to accept the award. We will also be presenting the YPA Legend Award to industry professional Eugene Mopsik, current Executive Director of the American Society of Media Photographers.
It is a red carpet event that will provide access to the prestigious museum’s wonderful exhibits. Speeches, entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and photo opportunities will surely make the night one to remember!
Most important you will help to support a foundation which has focused all its efforts into providing aspiring image-makers with access to the kind of practical industry knowledge, experience, resources, and contacts they need to build sustainable careers as photography professionals. Help us carry on with our mission to inspire, educate and empower the next generation of these visual storytellers.
We’d love to have new sponsors from amongst you but most of all we need you, your friends and families to support us and purchase a ticket or even a table. Come join us in this wonderful celebration.
Tickets must be purchased in advance, (no door sales permitted). We are looking forward to a lovely evening with you!
