Start Dreaming on how you can win $25, 000 with the return of the Holman Prize for Blind Ambition, the annual $25,000 award for blind adventurers and creators.
In 2017, the Prize’s inaugural year received more than 200 applications from two dozen countries, with the three winners, encompassing a wide range of ambition, daring and creativity:
Ahmet Ustunel is training to kayak Turkey’s Bosphorus Strait, completely solo; Penny Melville-Brown is taking her YouTube baking show to six continents; Ojok Simon is teaching his fellow Ugandans to become self-sustaining beekeepers.
Named after the 19th century blind world traveler James Holman, the Holman Prize empowers blind men and women from around the world to complete the journeys and projects of their dreams.
What would you do as a Holman Prizewinner?
Applications for the prize open on January 16, 2017. The initial application is a 90-second YouTube video explaining what you would accomplish as a Holman Prizewinner (as well as a brief written questionnaire). Once applications close, a select group of semifinalists will be chosen to submit in-depth written proposals, and later, finalists will be interviewed by LightHouse staff. Check out last year’s finalists’ video proposals to get acquainted with the types of projects you can pitch.
