The LightHouse for the Blind in San Francisco is calling for submissions for the Holman Prize, a global $25,000 award for blind adventurers and creators. Apply by February 28 to follow in the footsteps of other ambitious blind people from all over the world and pursue the project of your dreams as a 2019 Holman Prizewinner.
Now in its second year, the Holman Prize was launched by the LightHouse for the Blind in San Francisco as a means of enabling legally blind people from around the world to make their dreams a reality, and to demonstrate to the public at large that in an accessible world, blind people are capable of doing anything that their sighted peers can do.
The initial application is a quirky one: we ask each applicant to send us a 90-second YouTube video explaining, briefly, how they would put the prize money to use. From there, a select group of semifinalists will submit in-depth written proposals, and finalists will be interviewed by LightHouse staff.
