Diversity in Cultures Award (Canada)

17 April 2010
Diversity in Cultures Award (Canada)
The call for entries has been announced for the Omni Television Diversity in Cultures Award, which gives the winner $10,000 to help transform their vision of a documentary program into reality.

The successful applicant will bring to the table a treatment or one-page story outline for a program that promotes the ideals of diversity in the many cultures that make up our province.

Last year's winner, The Coconuts by Baljit Sangra (Warrior Boyz) and Nimisha Mukerji (65_RedRoses) is a “lighthearted” glimpse into the lives of second-generation South Asians, raised in western culture.

Entries must be in by May 7—along with the outline, a production budget and financing scenario, a development budget and financing scenario, a list of confirmed funding, license, broadcast, exhibition or distribution commitments, a brief bio of those primarily involved with production, as well as a development and production schedule. Phew. Did you remember to breathe?

No staples are allowed with your application package, nor folders, nor packaging. (And that demand is accentuated with exclamation marks on the official call for submissions document.) Only paperclips and loose loose-leaf permitted.

The potential to win is brought to you by Omni Television and the Leo Awards as well as the Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Foundation of British Columbia.

The award will be presented at the annual Leo Awards (which honour the best in B.C. television and film), to be held on June 4 and 5.
