The fifth annual Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards celebration

Normally Jeanie Kahnke, senior director of Public Relations and External Affair at the Muhammad Ali Center, hires me to photograph the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards celebration for internal and PR uses after the event. When I asked her if she’d considered using AP Images for the distribution of images and video from the event it began a process that led to me putting her in touch with the folks that send me commercial assignments. They sealed the deal, so my coverage was through AP Images this year.

Here’s a link to AP Content Services’ page for the event: (The slideshow on the site is slow to load, so it may not work right away. Give it a moment …)

MUHAMMAD ALI HUMANITARIAN AWARDS SHOWCASES INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIANS AND ALI’S WORLDWIDE IMPACT

The fifth annual celebration honored Princess Dr. Nisreen El-Hashemite, Patricia Arquette, Ashley Judd, and Heather Heyer, who posthumously received the Humanitarian Award for Social Justice. Her mother, Susan Bro, accepted the award.

I’m not sure how it works because I’m on the other end, doing the job. If you’re wondering how AP Images can help you get the word out about your client’s next big event or announcement, let me know! I’d be glad to send their contact info your way.
