18TH ANNUAL LUCIE AWARDS
The 18th Annual Lucie Awards have been postponed and will be rescheduled once new dates become available. With the extended closure of Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City and uncertainty of other venues, Lucie Foundation took the extraordinary step to postpone the events. Lauren Wendle, President, Lucie Foundation, adds, “We at Lucie Foundation wish our community health, safety, and fortitude at this challenging time. We look forward to celebrating the Masters of Photography and our industry at the appropriate time and place.” The health and safety or our honorees and attendees are of primary concern. In light of the current situation with Covid-19 (Coronavirus), and the need for all of us to assist in minimizing the spread of the disease in our communities, our plans are fluid and we will continue to follow all of the guidelines of the CDC and New York City. We do feel that it is important to honor the masters of photography, and the impact that photographs have in our world today, so we will reschedule.More information
