Call for content providers in tourism (Fully Funded )

Project Description

The photography industry in the region is much popular among the youth. However, the opportunities to shape their passion into a sector, economy, entrepreneurial and development-oriented market is not available in their local market where the project runs. For youth, camera is just a tool of joy and passion without much opportunity to reach the next level as professionals.

On one hand, youth who wants to become professional photographers/videographers might get involved in photography and videography covering ceremonies mainly weddings, birthdays and puberty ceremonies – however not in other sectors like tourism due to the lack of sector specific skills. On the other hand, there are various tourism-based industries who expect services of professional content providers. Few of these industries may afford to seek the services of professionals – most of them are Colombo based – bearing a significant cost. Majority of the tourism-based industries cannot afford such services with the high cost involved.  This project will provide skills development to 20 participants to become content providers in photography, videography and animation related to tourism in Eastern province and Polonnaruwa.
