StoryCode New York City Message Board › Digital Vision Grant Program
New York, NY
Friend's company (EConsultancy) is running a grant program to encourage industry people who aren't established "thought leaders" to create a piece of content around an industry issue/question/tactic they're passionate about.
As part of what we're calling "Digital Vision" they provide a monetary grant (up to $10k) and research support (for example, if someone's idea requires a survey, we'll work with them to design it and field/process it).
Whatever content produced will be published to EConsultancy subscribers (400k) of course, and spread through partners, social, etc. They'll be announcing the winners at SXSW, and the winner gets a ticket as well (I think those are running at $750 at the moment).
The nature of the content is completely open, but could be a survey, a report, an infographic or a series of blog posts. The only limit; it's got to be interesting to digital marketers, agencies or one of the major groups associated with the industry (tech VCs for example).
Thanks for reading, and if you know someone who would be a great candidate, shoot them this link.
