Training & Events
Access funding to take the training you need to build your screen media career.
During this period of physical distancing, SPYA and Yukon Media Development have been working to provide Yukon film and screen-media industry professionals with funding to take online training. Approved applicants will receive up to 100% of the cost of the training to a maximum of $750 per applicant.
Deadline: Thursday, April 30, 2020, at 5pm. We will do our best to notify successful applicants as soon as possible. Should all funding not be awarded, a second intake will be announced.
A jury from SPYA, YMD and an outside film professional will review the applications and make decisions based on:
Successful applicants will receive 80% of their funding upon approval. The remaining 20% will be paid to the applicant upon successful completion of the training and receipt of an invoice.
Online training must be complete by Aug. 30, 2020. All invoices must be received by Sept. 15, 2020. Invoices received after Sept. 15, 2020 may not be eligible for payment.
This program is made possible by the support of Yukon Media Development.
You may apply to both the Training and Mentorship programs. If you do indicate which one is your priority as we may only be able to fund one per person.
SPYA’s industry training program gives you the opportunity to upgrade your skills or get some one-on-one advice from a leader in your field. This program is delivered with support from Yukon Media Development.
