Closing Date Extended Until Monday 26 November
The Mental Health Foundation has extended the application deadline for the 2012 NZ Mental Health Media Grants for an additional two weeks, until 5pm Monday 26 November 2012.

There are two grants available totalling $16,000. Applications should be for journalism projects that:
• Reduce stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness
• Increase understanding and support for people experiencing mental distress
• Highlight, positively profile and promote mental health issues and experiences in New Zealand

If you are a journalist, photojournalist or freelance in print, TV, radio or online - and have a good idea for this year’s media grants, but missed the original deadline - then go to www.mediagrants.org.nz and submit an application. For more information email info@mediagrants.org.nz
