Dan Eldon was a passionate activist, artist, and photojournalist. He was fearless in his quest to help others and in his desire to tell the stories that others were not telling. Tragically, at the age of twenty-two, Dan was killed while working as a photo-journalist in Somalia. His work has appeared in several art journals and exhibitions, inspiring people around the world. Kathy Eldon of Creative Visions Foundation, established the Dan Eldon Activist Award to honor his life and creative spirit; she presents the award to the filmmaker who best uses media to effect positive change.
