At Conundrum Press, we support Black Lives Matter and stand in solidarity with anti-racist protestors fighting for crucial change against systemic racism in the US, Canada, and elsewhere. We also recognize that police brutality disproportionately impacts our Indigenous communities. As we reflect on these issues, as well as our own privileged position on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People, we’ve also been considering ways that we, as a small independent publisher, can contribute.

 

With that goal in mind, we are offering an annual $1000 bursary to a Black or Indigenous person living in Canada, for the creation and production of a mini-comic. The selected creator will also receive help with distribution through Conundrum Press. Limited to developing and emerging creators but all ages and genders welcome.
 
To apply for the bursary, send 3-5 sample pages to sarah@conundrumpress.com before December 31, 2020.
