Conservation Media Group Action Grant

Conservation Media Group Action Grant

Conservation Media Group Action Grants range from $5,000-$10,000. DEADLINE: APRIL 15, 2016

NICHE: Our focus for these grants is on short films created to make impact in healthy oceans or renewable energy solutions. We're seeking proposals with innovative styles, like a new audience, user-generated content, or VR360 projects. We also have applications open for our Fall Workshops, which often lead attendees to more funding for their projects.

-Projects must utilize video with the goal to create measureable impact in the CMG Focus Areas of ocean health or renewable energy solutions. Proposals that fall outside of CMG's Focus Areas will not be considered.
-Video concepts should be engaging, unique, and part of a strategic campaign to create change that can be tracked through key performance indicators.
-Video total run time must be under 5 minutes, however the project may be comprised of multiple videos with a total run time of under 5 minutes. For example, a project could result in one 5-minute film, two 2-minute films, or five 1-minutes films. Projects may also be less in total run time; an animation project, for example, may only be one minute in length.
-A clearly defined target audience should be associated with a specific call-to-action and distribution plan. Target audiences could include millions of people, or even a single stakeholder, but should be thoughtfully determined with a specific result in mind. Target audience of "everyone" or ages "1-100" will not be considered.
-Projects must include a measurement of resulting impact and push beyond "vanity metrics" such as shares, likes or social media views to measure on-the-ground impact for ocean health and renewable energy solutions.
-The project's distribution plan should specify how the video will reach and engage with the target audience, whether through social media, traditional media or in-person events & networks.
Partnerships for distribution and impact are required if the applicant is an individual filmmaker or filmmaking team.
