More exciting news coming from our friends at the Video Consortium!
The Video Consortium has partnered with production company Hayden5 to launch the 2021 Gear Grant: a video camera equipment package with a retail value of $15,000 to be awarded to an emerging filmmaker or visual journalist from a traditionally underrepresented background in our industry.
A tremendous barrier to entry in the media is the cost of gear, and this opportunity is pushing to support equitable employment opportunities and against systemic barriers to entry into the industry. Freelancers actively working anywhere in the US are eligible, and individuals in New York and Los Angeles are especially encouraged to apply.
Read more about this program and apply by the July 19th deadline over on their site: https://www.videoconsortium.org/hayden5-rise
