International Photography Contest Celebrates Obama: SUBMIT UR WORK TODAY!

Got some good pics? Um, excuse me. For the artists who considers themselves a photographer (myself included), they are not pics, but PHOTOS.

Here's a great opp found on the cool new site started by DC-based photographer Kuroji Ntu (who is also a frequent Lib Muse member).

Obama is a great president. His presence is impacting grants like no other president prior. Grant funding for minorities and middle class have increased nearly 10,000% in the past week. I've filed for all of my grants, have you? Don't miss out before it's all gone!
