Canon Oceania is helping put Not for Profit organisations and local schools who are passionate about the environment behind the lens.

To mark World Environment Day, the world’s leading imaging brand has announced applications are open for Canon’s 2016 Environmental Grants Program, with five grants of $5,000 worth of Canon equipment available to those who are working on a sustainability project or initiative.

Winners are selected based on the positive impact their project is having on the environment – sought across a number of categories, including community and schools (Australia), regional, education and community (New Zealand).

Canon Oceania sustainability manager Janet Leslie said they are in search of great ideas that are making an impact.

“Canon is in search of great ideas that are making a positive impact, big or small, to our environment and the world we live in,” Leslie said.

“To enter, groups simply need to share their ideas with us for the opportunity to receive in-kind support from Canon.”

The grants will be awarded across a number of categories:

  • Community or NFP Grant: An environmental project with significance to a local community or NFP group.
  • School Grant: An environmental project being run by a primary or secondary school.
  • Runner-up Grant ($1,000 AUD): An environmental project from either a school or community group making an environmental impact.
  • 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.

Canon Australia and Oceania managing director Yusuke Mizoguchi said the grants are in line with Canon’s philosophy.

“Canon’s philosophy is ‘living and working together for the common good’ and we’re passionate about celebrating some of the great work happening all around us in our local community,” Mizoguchi said.

“If you’re a community group or school that is making a difference, then we encourage you to apply if you think a grant would contribute to the success of your initiative.”

Applications are open until Friday 5 August with the winners announced by Wednesday 31 August. Apply here.
