Mental Health Media Grants

Our 2020 Pūtea Pāpāho/Mental Health Media Grants are now open for applications!

This year, we’re asking you to use your creative or journalistic talents to patua te whakamā/lift the shame and judgment around mental distress/illness, so that all New Zealanders can enjoy equal opportunities and live their lives free of mental distress stigma and discrimination.

To do this, we’re offering three Journalism grants and two Creative grants worth up to $10,000 each.

Our Journalism Grants are open to TV, print, radio, online journalists and photojournalists.

Our Creative Grants are open to artists, videographers, social media campaigners, creative writers, musicians and performers.

Applications are now open and close at 5pm, Friday 9 October 2020.
