Creative District Offers Grant to Support an ‘Outstanding’ Web Series

/ Aug 14, 2014


Creative District, an online professional network for filmmakers, offers $5,000 as part of a monthly grant program to help users complete existing projects. This month, the network is making that grant available to an “outstanding web series” from a YouTube or Vimeo creator.

The grant is available to any web series — regardless of which stage of production it’s in — as long as the project has been uploaded to Creative District and kept up to date.

Backed by Technicolor, Creative District currently supports more than 12,000 creators on its platform. Since launching in March, the network has awarded six grants to a variety of projects.

From Creative District, here are the rules for eligibility and applying for the August grant:
