The finalists will use their production grants to bring projects to life and fans will then vote to select two winners (one from B.C. and one from Alberta).
The winners will receive a $50,000 grant to produce their full web series, as well as customized career training and mentorship and distribution opportunities via Telus.
Deadline for submissions is April 11.
Finalists will be announced in May and the winners will be announced in August.
