Lethbridge residents and people from all across Alberta and B.C. are set to receive a nice little chunk of change if they qualify for a sweet new grant. The Telus STORYHIVE Voices initiative supports content creators like filmmakers and vloggers who are looking for some extra funding to create their own locally reflective episodic project. $10,000 will be awarded to those who are eligible. You can submit a wide variety of ideas for the project.
“If you want to do reviews on movies or makeup tutorials, or like you talked about, it could be cooking shows, trivia and talk shows. It can be about cities. It could also be about a local landmark or store. Something that’s really well known in your community that you want to expand on and create a program about,” says Product Manager for Telus STORYHIVE, Laura Duncan.
STORYHIVE has supported a community of more than 18,000 local content creators in Western Canada since 2013, awarding over $11 million in funding in addition to providing a safe space for storytellers to hone their skills and bring the projects they care about to life.
Lethbridge creators have also been funded. Beets & Eats from STORYHIVE 18 and ones from STORYHIVE 17 AND 14.
Applications for the grant will be accepted until October 26th.
