The Daniel Stewart Memorial Fund was founded in 2020 to honor the memory of Daniel Stewart, a Capital Region photographer, who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in Forest Grove, Oregon in that year. The fund is supported by community member contributions and seeks to support developing self-taught photographers who aspire to grow their careers. DONATE HERE to support next year’s early career photographers.
Applicants were asked to submit photographs, a written statement and participate in an interview with the review committee. Judges included volunteers from the Underground Railroad Education Center board, community volunteers and area photographers.
