Kickstart your future in this four-month mentorship with access to professional content creators and the latest Canon equipment. In this program you will tackle creative briefs, build your first body of work and discover how to get started in the creative industries with one-on-one + group learning, and support of the Red Straps recruits. Applications are closed, due to an overwhelming number of entries and the selection team considering every entry, successful applicants will now be notified by March 8.
Submissions must be entirely completed and entered by 5pm February 15. Contact will be made to successful applicants via email between February 20-28. The first program begins March 4. If you’re unavailable during this program but would love to be apart of Red Straps, stay tuned for other programs running during the year.
Recruits will be considered on their written response, and their uploaded images or video clip. Those successful will showcase a genuine passion for capturing moments, whether stills or motion, professional camera or smartphone. They will have an interest in a future career in the creative industries, and an enthusiasm to improve their photography or filmmaking, eager to learn from young professionals.
Only one application per entrant.
Mentoring will be provided via video conferencing in a private Red Straps online group. Each recruit will also be able to have one-one-one video consultation with a mentor each month. Each recruit will have a face-to-face workshop with their nearest Canon Collective Ambassador each month.
Upload five images or a short 1-2 min clip you are most proud of. Make sure you tell us in 100 words or less why you’re passionate about a future in photography or filmmaking, and include your social media handles.
Progress will only be shared within the Red Straps group, but we welcome recruits to share their assignments, progress and challenges with their own networks.
No, we will provide you with a Canon kit, including the new EOS R Mirrorless Camera, RF lenses, selected EF lenses, and adaptors.
