The Kirk Grant provides visible exposure for amateur photographers and financial reward to aid new artists in fulfilling their creative goals. Established in memory in memory of Captain Kirk Gardner, amateur photographer who didn't get a chance to pursue his artistic goals. His photography showcased a zest for life and an appreciation for the amazing diversity of our planet; both its people and the natural world. The Kirk Grant endeavors to encourage new talent while generating interest in our cause; the awareness and support of cancer patients through gift packages and donated services.

First and second place winner’s entries are printed and matted for auction at cancer fundraising events. Winners and finalists are showcased on our website gallery page. Press releases are distributed online, which include the winning photos and a brief biography about the artist. Press releases are also shared on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.) The prestige of public exposure is an excellent addition to a new photographer’s resume.

Entrants retain all rights to their creative work.
