If you know of someone who has gone above and beyond during the COVID-19 pandemic, Telus wants to hear about it.

The communications company has launched the Telus Storyhive Local Heroes Documentary Edition, which will provide $800,000 in filmmaking grants to support the telling of stories that reflect the impacts of COVID-19 on local communities and highlight heroes that have emerged.

The project will provide $20,000 each to 40 creators across Western Canada, who have until Oct. 7 to pitch their ideas. The 40 finalists will be announced on Jan. 14, and each successful team will then work with mentors over six months to produce and deliver a short documentary and a behind-the-scenes feature.

The finished projects will be featured on select Telus platforms throughout the rest of 2021.
