Opening December 1, the John Rooney fund has earmarked US$15,600 for five emerging LGBTQ+ and underrepresented talent in animation.
One outstanding Canadian candidate will be selected for the content development stream while up to 4 candidates will be selected for the scriptwriting stream. The Fund enables scriptwriting stream recipients to participate in a writers’ summit for a television series, and for the content development winner to pitch their content at conferences of their choosing throughout the year.
At the completion of each project, all grant recipients may be asked to write a brief overview of their experience, for use in reporting or as a YMA blog post.
