Make a bigger impact for the next generation of photographers beyond #GivingTuesday!

We want to extend our deepest gratitude to the International Leica Society community for supporting photography and our Philanthropy Fund on #GivingTuesday, December 3, 2019!

This was our fourth year doing a #GivingTuesday campaign and we appreciate everyone who participated! While we were able to add to the Philanthropy Fund, it still needs your support to award another deserving photographer our grant in 2020 to complete their vision. Please consider donating to our Philanthropy Fund as part of your end-of-year contributions today. 

Our Philanthropy Fund was established because we understand the importance of giving back to our community by providing financial support and exposure to the next generation of photographers. This year, we were honored to award our third annual Photography Grant to Scott Brennan, following 2018’s Mark Kauzlarich, and 2017’s first-ever award to Ksenia Kuleshova.

Thank you for keeping the Leica legacy alive and sharing your Leica journey with us!
