The mission of the annual Thirst Relief Mentor Auction is twofold, to save lives and change the world by utilizing the incredible talent and generosity of the photography industry and to create better and more successful photographers.

The auction pages will not be available until the auction is live, starting February 8th. Bidding will be available starting February 8th.

This year’s auction will take place on Thirst Relief’s eBay account, February 8th – February 11th, 2016. The auction starts at 8:30PM EST on February 8th and ends at 10:30PM EST on February 11th. This year we will be staggering auction start and finish times by 3 minutes so you can bid on multiple mentors up until the very end!
