If you’re an Australian photographer or filmmaker with a deserving story to tell, problem to solve or positive impact to make, either locally or globally, the CameraPro Explorer’s Grant is your chance to make it happen and make it known.
Established by CameraPro in 2018, the Explorer’s Grant is designed to support change-making initiatives and raise awareness of them through photography/video.
CameraPro created The Explorer’s Grant to aid Australian Storytellers in gaining exposure and support for their cause through photography and videography. The project can last up to 6 months with a focus on communities, business or entrepreneurs making a positive social or environmental impact locally or globally. CameraPro is looking for creativity that has impact and a strong reach.
For the 2019 Explorer’s Grant, CameraPro has pledged a total of $25,000 in funding:
- $10,000 for travel and production
- $10,000 to donate to causes
- $5,000 for promotion of project with CameraPro
Applications for funding small and large are welcomed; CameraPro know that sometimes it only takes a little funding to help achieve a lot.
The types of projects supported include:
- Cisarua Refugee Learning Centre – a refugee-led school in Indonesia 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.
- Rafiki Africa Ministries, Buwooya Mission School, EthiopiAid and Action Ethiopia – locally run Ugandan and Ethiopian aid organizations assisting disadvantaged children, women and local farmers.
