Applications sought for CameraPro's $25,000 Explorer's Grant
Brisbane-based camera store CameraPro has launched the second annual CameraPro Explorer’s Grant.
Applicants can choose to apply for $10,000, $6,000, $4,000, or smaller amounts depending on the scale of the project. The remaining $5,000 will be used for publicity.
Three winning applications will have six months to document their project, and will be assisted by CameraPro with exposure at the projects' conclusion.
Last year’s Explorer’s Grant helped to support and promote a variety of projects, including a project on the Cisarua Refugee Learning Centre in Indonesia by Jolyon Hoff, a refugee-led school teaching 1,500 refugee children from Afghanistan unable to attend local schools, Meet the Ocean, an educational non-profit using virtual reality to inspire/teach the public about marine conservation and rehabilitate kids in hospital and Rafiki Africa Ministries, Buwooya Mission School, EthiopiAid and Action Ethiopia – locally run Ugandan and Ethiopian aid organisations assisting disadvantaged children, women and local farmers.
