$50,000 Prize up for Grabs in Vancouver

Posted by jg on October 31st, 2009 in Category Charity News, News from Canada (no responses)

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.
