"Being a member of the Foto Awards' Host Committee is important to me because every step towards showing young women how to be resourceful and creative is a step towards more equitable societies for everyone."

Amy Tierney is a portrait photographer, director, photo instructor and ambassador photographer for SanDisk.

Near and dear to her heart is a project she co-crafted with nationally recognized non-profit Step Up Women’s Network called “Photojournalism for Girls … The I Dream To Project”. The program ran for five years, and taught over 400 underserved teen girls in LA, New York and Chicago the tools of photojournalism as the skills to meet with the very women they dreamed to be.

Amy believes the underlying power to transform lives, markets and communities continues to be the stories we share, and looks forward to the opportunity to share yours!
