Canon offer $15,000 in Environmental Grants to help grow community projects throughout NZ

Canon New Zealand is calling for kiwis to get creative and apply for its annual Environmental Grants Programme, offering $15,000 worth of grants in-kind to New Zealand schools, community groups and not-for-profit organisations working hard to make a difference to their environment and the community.

There are three grants up for grabs, with each winning project receiving $5,000 worth of Canon equipment to help support their initiative – from digital compact and DSLR cameras, to binoculars, printers, security cameras or projectors.

Winners are selected based on the environmental merits of each project, as well as on the impact that the Canon products would make to support the project and realise its success.

Applications for this year’s grants are open to community based or regional organisations as well as education organisations including preschool, primary and secondary or tertiary projects. Applications are now open until Friday 10 October 2014.

“We look forward to offering our support for another year and once again recognise and reward some of the outstanding organisations that continue to dedicate their time and energy to improving the local community by embracing positive environmental and sustainability practices” explains Yusuke Mizoguchi, Managing Director of Canon New Zealand.

Visit www.canon.co.nz/environment for further details and an application form.


The 2014 Canon Environmental Grants will be awarded under the following categories:

Regional Award: An environmental project with significance to a rural or regional area within New Zealand;

Education Award: An environmental project being run by a kindergarten, primary or secondary school or tertiary organisation, or group within the organisation, within New Zealand;

Community Award: An environmental project being run by a community group or organisation within New Zealand.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
