Follow the Light Foundation Announces Extended date for submissions to
The 2009 Follow the Light Foundation Surf Photographers Grant and change of date for the 4th Follow the Light Recipient dinner

$5,000 to be granted to the winning photographer

We are happy to announce that we are extending the deadline for our 2009 applications from Aug. 17 to Aug. 31, 2009. The winner of the grant for this year will now be announced on October 22, 2009 during the 2009 Follow the Light Recipient Dinner to be held on at the Surfing Heritage Museum in San Clemente, CA.

SAN CLEMENTE, CA- For the fourth year in a row, the Follow the Light Foundation (FTLF) will award $5000 to a deserving photographer in honor of the late Larry “Flame” Moore. The FTLF was founded after Moore’s passing in the attempt to continue his legacy of assisting up and coming photographers. Photographers of all ability levels are encouraged to participate. The application and details can be found on the FTLF website http://followthelightfoundation.org.

The FTLF is proud to be working with Surfing Magazine, SWELL, Hurley, Surfline and Oakley to provide this year’s grant.

About Follow the Light: On October 10th, 2005, the surfing community lost one of its most influential figures. After a nearly three-year battle with brain cancer Larry “Flame” Moore, the Photo Editor of SURFING Magazine for 30 years, passed. He left behind a legacy of brilliant photography and an army of photographers trained by him. Through his work at SURFING Magazine, Larry literally gave three decades of surfing their “look.” Today, honoring Larry’s request, we have established Follow the Light Foundation (FTLF), an organization that will help finance the dreams of surf photographers, pushing the sport and its lensmen forward.
