East West Clicks fundraisers invites students and calls for prints

Dear AAJA student photographers,

Any Asian American photojournalism student interested in attending for “free” either the San Francisco AAJA’s East West Clicks on Saturday, Sept. 18 or the Sacramento AAJA’s PhotoShowcase on Monday, Oct. 4, please contact me.

These two photography fund-raising events are all about helping out Asian American student photojournalists. Both chapters hope to raise over $10,000 in scholarships.

Professionals – remember when you were starting our in photojournalism.

Here’s the info (again) on donating prints:

Please donate one or two prints to each of the chapters.

When selecting your donation print, consider what someone would purchase. In other words, spot news doesn’t sell well – sports stars, celebrities, Obama, food, scenics and great feature photos sell well. People who buy these photos want to hang the purchased photo on their wall.

Mailing Print:

  • Your 11×14 print will be framed in a glass frame.
  • Autograph your print on the lower right under the photo in white border area. Prints without autographs do NOT sell well.
  • Include basic caption information of when and where you took the photo and description of photo on separate paper.
  • Enclose your name, affiliation, address, phone number and email address.
  • Do not send CD or email photo.

Print sold for personal use only. No reproduction rights are granted or should be assumed. AAJA will email you the final selling price after the auction.

San Francisco Chapter deadline: Friday, Sept. 10.
