The Circle of Light Photo Project is an annual exhibit of photographs taken by people whose blindness was cured by cornea transplants. The 2019 exhibit will be on display at RedLine Contemporary Art Center in Denver's RiNo Art District from August 13 to August 24. The exhibit culminates in a gala on August 24 where the photos are auctioned off, along with hundreds of donated items from safaris to restaurant deals, to benefit the sight-saving mission of the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank. The exhibit aims to show, through a visual medium, the impact that eye, organ and tissue donation has in the lives of others and on our communities.

So, we want to partner with area photographers to help us make the exhibit the best it can be. We are looking for:
• Professional photographers to help us select the final photographs for the exhibit. This will be done online.
• Photographers to assist us with file preparation for the selected photos. This may include editing, color correction, and solving resolution issues. This is only for photos that will be printed and on the exhibit walls. This is typically 20-30 photos.
• One or two professionals to assist us in determining the layout of the final exhibit as it will be displayed on the walls.
Each of our volunteer photographers will receive:
