What happens if my application is successful?

Each successful 2021 Black Creators project is eligible to receive one of 20 available $20,000 production grants from TELUS to produce their project and the producing teams will receive mentorship and training. The 20 successful projects will also receive distribution on select TELUS platforms. 

Grants are only available to residents of eligible BC and Alberta communities. Before the funding is awarded, the Project Lead must submit current proof of residency for the address listed on their submission.

If the Project Lead wishes to execute the TELUS Grant Agreement under a company name, the Project Lead must own and control at least 51% of the company and the company must be located in the Project Lead’s community of residence.

The successful Project Lead, as well as one member of their team, must attend a mandatory online Creator Workshop on Feb 12, 2022 and April 2, 2022. The workshop is a vital part of the STORYHIVE process for all teams.
