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.

John McBeth: Our World Cup All Blacks

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind. There were often several trials, which sometimes featured over 150 players, possibly an inter island match or a final trial, then we listened to the announcement of the team on radio.
