The Masters of Digital Media (MDM) Program at Vancouver’s Centre for Digital Media recently launched a fantastic social change initiative called: The Big Push. They are inviting artists, inventors, educators, health care professionals, nonprofit organizations, or academic/research institutions to submit a proposal for a digital media-based project to deliver a product that promotes a philanthropic cause or positive social change initiative.
The prize, valued at $50,000, includes a team of multidisciplinary graduate students who will work with the chosen applicant/s to define and execute a final project, and help realize social and cultural goals of the proposal. The deadline for applications is November 13, 2009. This is a very worthwhile project and I would appreciate any help in spreading the word, you can apply here.
