There are only five days left to enter the ‘Images of Resilience’ competition organised by the National Digital Artists Association (naDA) as a special fundraising competition for photographers and digital artists to support Award Winning Mobile Photographer Meri Walker (@iPhoneArtGirl).
Walker lost her home and all her belongings in the fire that ravaged Talent, OR on September 8, 2020 – a devastating loss. She needs significant support to rebuild and reestablish her life. naDA is proud to support the efforts of her friends, family and others in the digital art community in this endeavor. To that end, all entry fees, sales commissions and other donations or proceeds from this international online competition will be contributed to the GoFundMe campaign that has been set up for her.(gofundme.com/f/help-meri-walker-rebuild)

Juror’s Statement – Teresa Lunt
Resilience is not just survival but a kind of strengthening as a result of a severe trial, like the development of a muscle through a repeated tearing down. As the theme for this show, I will be looking for images of resilience that I anticipate will resonate with life experiences of artists and viewers alike.
