Northern Voice Travel Bursaries

So, we were lucky enough to get a killer deal on our space at the UBC campus for Northern Voice 2007. This meant that we had some money available to do other things with.

We decided one of the things we wanted to do was to increase the reach of the conference. We're lucky enough to have a lot of friends travel great distances already to come to the conference, but maybe there's a really passionate blogger somewhere far away that just doesn't have the money to be able to travel.

Today Darren posted the details on the Northern Voice Travel Bursaries -- six travel bursaries of $500CDN each. We'll award these based on a blog/video/photo/podcast post that the applicant makes, and then fill out the bursary submission form.

It's the middle of January, and I can't wait for the end of February to roll around.
