Blue Earth Alliance  sponsors photography projects  that educate the public about endangered cultures, threatened environments, or current topics of social concern. If your project meets this mission, you are invited to apply for sponsorship. Blue Earth is a 501(c)3, so our projects are eligible to receive tax deductible contributions from foundations and individuals. Blue Earth provides assistance with organization, raising funds, publishing and publicity. Blue Earth Alliance does not make direct grants to sponsored projects. Submissions are accepted for sponsorship twice each year, January 20 and July 20. The announcement of recipients is made approximately two months after the deadline.
