International Conservation Photography Awards at Seattle’s Burke Museum

Special thanks to Burke board member Steve Whiston ( for providing the photos

The gala opening of the International Conservation Photography Awards at Seattle’s Burke Museum On July 19th was a huge success.  Well over 400 people attended and there were lines out the door.  The Burke exceeded 1100 people over the course of the weekend.

The ICP Awards was founded in 1997 by Art Wolfe and the exhibit of more that 75 images, representing the best of conservation photography from around the world, will be on view through September 6th, 2010.  If you can make it to Seattle it is a spectacular show and deserves to be seen in person!  If you can’t, visit to view the Winners’ Galleries online.  Congratulations to all the photographers!

Thank you for making this all possible:
