 2012 International Conservation Photography Awards
Seattle –The Burke Museum will once again exhibit the winners of the International Conservation Photography Awards, a biennial juried competition initiated in 1997 by acclaimed local nature photographer, Art Wolfe.  

Over 75 photos were chosen from more than 1500 images submitted by amateur and professional photographers from across the globe. The photographs are conservation-focused, chosen in categories such as Wildlife, Landscape, Underwater, and Community at Risk, which focuses on environmental threats to urban areas. Capturing beautiful moments in the natural world, the photos connect us to the tiniest of creatures and enormous environmental changes. The competition and its award-winning photos inspire, educate, and encourage us all to consider our impacts on the world’s natural resources.
Here are the links to this year's competition.

About Maker Faire:

The mission of Maker Faire events is to inspire, inform, connect and entertain thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers of all ages and backgrounds through the public gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkers, hobbyists, science clubs, students, authors and commercial exhibitors. The inaugural Maker Faire was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2011 celebrated its sixth annual Bay Area event with some 100,000 people in attendance. In 2010, Maker Faire expanded to Detroit and New York City.
Community driven, independently produced Mini Maker Faire events inspired by Maker Faire are now being produced around the United States and the world, including Seattle Mini Maker Faire. Maker Faire is supported by MAKE Magazine and O’Reilly Media.

1st Annual I CAN!

Freighthouse Square, Tacoma, WA
March 31st

I participated in the 1st Annual Interactive Community Arts Network (I CAN!) event at Freighthouse Square on Saturday, March 31st. This was a free family-oriented event for the community, by the community, drawing together resources already available within the community.

The goal for producing this event was to help Revitalize Freighthouse Square. In an effort to bring community together at a once-thriving space
I gave a presentation on Demystifying Digital Icons on a digital camera

PLUS I had a solo show in a vendor space turned into the Dayton Knipher Gallery for the month of April
