Getty Images Creative Grants exceptional prize for Thomas Cristofolleti and Phibious Vietnam !
This is one of the most inportant awards on this field, maybe the most important one, and Phibious + photographer Thomas Cristofolleti are exceptional finalist !
Created in 2009, the Getty Images Creative Grants were introduced to help nonprofits use the power of imagery to promote positive change in the world and help communicate their stories more effectively.
This year, in addition to the two successful grant recipients (Linka Anne Odom and Klaus Thymann), two other outstanding grant applications were commended by the judges.
One of the exceptional grants was given to us Phibious Vietnam + Thomas Cristofoletti.
Madrid-based Photographer Thomas Cristofoletti and agency Phibious, based in Vietnam, were honored for their proposal to support the non-profit Federacao Camponesa KAFO in Guinea Bissau, which is devoted to the promotion of sustainable rural development for the local population. They proposed a selection of portraits taken of famous radio announcers whose testimony would help the rural population think and act in defense of their natural resources and would be featured on billboards, commercials and brochures. The campaign would help promote civil awareness of the environmental and social impact of phosphate mining on the region.Project partners:Photographer: Thomas CristofolettiAgency: PhibiousNonprofit: Federacao Camponesa KAFO

Second exceptional grant:
Photographer Heiko Hellwig and agency Echolot from Germany were honored for their proposal to support The Surfrider Foundation, whose mission is the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. They proposed a unique campaign to place large-scale images and banners on public beaches.
The two big winners this year:
Pathwayssees photographer Linka Anne Odom and agency Good Pilot collaborate with D-Foundation to pursue a project which aims to recruit volunteers to increase effectiveness of medical care provided to vulnerable people in India.  Through their visual communication, they aim to inspire doctors to travel to India and donate their skills to the project, as well as raise awareness around D-Foundation itself by creating pop-up exhibitions highlighting the charity’s work in hospitals around Germany.
·         Project Pressure, by photographer Klaus Thymann and agency Mother London will visually highlight global glacial history, before the demise of this natural wonder.  The grant will enable Thymann to travel to Nepal, where he will document the field work of the Project Pressure team and the impact of glacial retreat on the local population. As well as imagery and video, Mother London will also utilize social media platforms and narrated slideshows to record his work.

If you are looking for something beautiful to start the week with, have a look at these fantastic behind-the-scenes photos of the Mad Men characters on and off set. A great black & white work by James Minchin III. Right below my favorite shot of the set, so contemporary so surreal.

Ford Fiesta: The Fiestagram Campaign

Description digitalbuzz

What do you do when you need to showcase features in a car like the Ford Fiesta? Create an instagram campaign of course!? It’s called The Fiestagram, a campaign run through Facebook via Instagram where a new hashtag associated with one of the Fiesta’s high-tech features, such as #entry, #music and #hidden. People would then submit photos on Instagram, tagged with “#Fiestagram” and that week’s particular hashtag to join the campaign.

With the best photos selected to be featured in real-life galleries and live digital billboards across Europe, while Ford gave weekly prizes to those submitting particularly striking images. And as you’d expect, the final prize was a brand new Ford Fiesta. A pretty simple, but smart and well integrated social campaign to promote high-tech car features…

Intermission: You’ve Never Seen Childhood Photos Like These

Description good.is

If there was an award for “Most Creative Dad,” it would go straight to Jason Lee, whose daughters have bragging rights to the coolest collection of childhood photos we’ve ever seen. Since 2006, Lee’s been posting delightfully creative photos onto a blog devoted entirely his two daughters, Kristin and Kayla. Lee not only posts whimsical and adorable photos of his girls, finding clever ways to celebrate everything from holidays to Angry Birds, but also shares gorgeous portraits from significant events in their lives. For more of Lee’s work, check out his Flickr page.   

GOOD: What inspired you to create your blog in 2006?

JASON LEE: In 2006, my mother was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. The girls were constantly sick, with colds and coughs so I couldn’t always bring them to visit her. I started a blog as a way to keep my mom up-to-date with things that were going on in their lives, and hoping to cheer her up with pictures. It kind of just grew from there, and as the kids got older and crazier, so did some of the pictures.

GOOD: What’s your general creative process?

Lee: I come up with ideas based on things the girls do or say. It can be anything from activities they are involved in, to day-to-day life. I try to pre-visualize before any shooting takes place. 

GOOD: Do you have any personal favorites?

LEE: One of my favorite images is of them enjoying their first sunset at the beach. I remember vividly the moments leading up to the sunset, as the girls had never actually sat still long enough to appreciate something like this. They sat there in awe, and we counted down the moments as the sun set.  

GOOD: How long does each shoot generally take?

LEE: Shooting only takes a minute or two, and setup takes anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes per shoot. Some shoots take longer than others, setting up lighting and props take the longest. 

GOOD: Have parents asked you to take photos of their kids after seeing your photos? Any plans to move that direction?

LEE: I definitely get interest in these creative sessions, and have photographed other kids (and adults). I really enjoy weddings at this time, but who knows what the future will bring.
