VANCOUVER, May 14, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Photographers use their cameras as tools of exploration, documentation and ultimately, as instruments of change.
Sony Canada and the News Photographers Association of Canada (NPAC) are proud to announce a partnership to offer a $5,000 CAD grant to assist with a freelance project by a Canadian photojournalist.
To 'Be Alpha' is to be a leader, to be an innovator, to stand out amongst the crowd - It represents everything Sony stands for as a brand.
The goal is to celebrate the photojournalism community while also shining a light on issues that Canadians are passionate about – diversity, conservation, equality and more.
Members of NPAC can receive up to $5,000 CAD along with Sony mirrorless cameras on loan for the duration of the project that must feature Canadian content or a Canadian subject that must be completed and submitted by March 31, 2020.
"We are very excited to partner with Sony to offer this amazing opportunity to NPAC members. There are many reasons why projects are often tough to start or to complete and financials are definitely one of them. We're happy that we can help at least one deserving photographer share their passion and hard work and look forward to seeing what they produce." said Crystal Schick, president of NPAC.
Submission forms and rules are available on the NPAC website at: https://npac.ca/be-alpha-en. Deadline for submissions is: June 15, 2019.
