The Canada Media Fund (CMF) is sponsoring 8 media professionals to attend the upcoming Merging Media Transmedia Seminar and Lab 2011 in Vancouver on April 28th and 29th.
Conducted by Anita Ondine, one of the world’s foremost transmedia educators, the CMF-Merging Media Scholarships worth up to $800 each, will cover the registration fees for 8 selected participants and could include accommodation support for out of province attendees. All applicants to Merging Media’s Lab will be considered for the Scholarships, but priority will be given to digital media practitioners (including game, mobile and user experience developers) and individuals involved in selecting projects for funding.
The half day Transmedia Seminar held at Vancity Theatre on April 28th is open to the public, while the Lab at the BCIT Atrium on April 28-29 will enable 20 selected media professionals to develop projects in a intensive collaborative environment, while learning about transmedia creative and business practices from “Conception to Consumption”.
Deadline for Lab applications is April 8, 2011 and results of Scholarships will be announced in mid April.
