Here at Salt, we would love to help you get even more skilled at those skills so we are relaunching the $10K Upskill fund!
Yep, we have $10,000 we’d love to invest into you, or maybe a few depending on how much cash you need. It doesn't matter if you need $50 or $5000, apply for what you need. In 2019, we split the fund between five people.
This initiative is open to every member in Salt around New Zealand whether they are launching their career or have been working in media for decades.
Maybe there’s a camera workshop you’ve been wanting to attend, an actor's master class, a writers' festival or a conference that’s all about sparking creativity. We would love to get you there.
You can apply from now up until the 28th of July, 2021 by clicking the link below!
We will be announcing our winner or winners at our next big event in Auckland on the 5th of August (more to come on that soon!)
Thanks for being a part of Salt, we think you guys do an amazing job and this is just another way to encourage you in your craft and to help you to be and give your best.
Now go and start thinking about what you might want to spend that money on...
Last round we had five winners who split the grant with $1 to spare. Here's some feedback:
“I used the funds to complete a Certificate in Financial Services from the Open Polytechnic in 2019/2020. It's been great to feel more knowledgeable when I'm producing economy/investing stories for 1News.”
- TVNZ reporter Grace Adams
And Rhema Media Producer Kat McCormack: “The fund was really helpful! I completed a voiceover course at Australian Film Television and Radio School right before Covid-19 happened. I would recommend it to anyone.”
- Rhema Media Producer Kat McCormack
"I used the money to purchase an online audio production course called The Pro Audio Files, which I am (slowly) working my way through. I also purchased a licensed version of REAPER (Rapid Environment for Audio Production, Engineering, and Recording).”
