Do you know a budding young photographer between the ages of 16 and 24, who craves adventure and wants to make a difference?
The Benjamin Cole Brown Memorial Award was created in honour of one of Live Different’s most memorable humanitarians. Benjamin Cole used photography to create an awareness of the stories of the people he encountered in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, where he lived and worked.
While returning from an aid run to Haiti following Hurricane Matthew, the plane carrying Benjamin Cole and two other humanitarian workers encountered stormy weather and tragically crashed just off the coast of Puerto Plata.
In honour of his life and what he stood for, Live Different is providing two awards each summer to give photography enthusiasts the opportunity to participate in, and capture, a Live Different Build.
T.E. Wealth is a dedicated supporter of Live Different’s initiatives. Our staff participated in a 2016 build trip to the Dominican Republic, and plans to assist with future builds. We have also made a five-year commitment to sponsor Live Different’s Youth Empowerment Ice Road Tours, which bring hope and inspiration to struggling students in Canada’s Indigenous communities.
If you know someone who is interested in this life-changing opportunity, please forward this message so that they can apply here. The deadline is January 31, 2018. Best of luck!
