Kotaro Fukushima, Managing Director for Canon Oceania, said that improving access to technology was a core goal of the 2024 Grants Program. 

“Through this year’s Grants Program, Australian organisations and the communities they serve will have the opportunity to receive high-quality photo, video and printing technology, as well as funding support,” he said. 

Previous winners of the grants program have used program funding and Canon equipment supplied through the grant to close the technological equity gap for their communities.

Across the 2024 categories of Community, Education, Environment, and First Nations, the program will provide each Grant recipient with $5,000 worth of cash and Canon product ($2,500 cash and $2,500 in Canon product).

Products range from cameras to lenses, printers and other accessories.
