Access Copyright Grants - deadline February 1st!

It's not too late to apply for the Access Copyright Foundation's new Research grant!

Canada’s creative community is receiving a significant boost with the announcement of $300,000 in new funding for 2011. The grants will directly support the creation and dissemination of publishable Canadian works.

The Access Copyright Foundation (ACF) is partnering with the Saskatchewan Arts Board to administer the grant process. Awards are granted to Canada’s writers, visual artists and publishers to support professional development opportunities, research projects and events. All three activities are vital to ensuring that Canadians will continue to create new cultural works that will be enjoyed by their fellow citizens, and those around the world.

Applications for Research grants are currently being accepted. The application form is available at the Access Copyright Foundation website

The deadline for applications is February 1, 2011.
