The Crucial Creative Grant

Western / 2023

Crucial Crew is a creative production community.  Our founders have been APA Members for more than a decade and the concept was created while working with many of you in the Bay Area.

We are in the early stages of growing our network.  It’s traditionally a time when companies spend significant money on social media advertising and email campaigns.  However, that’s not a great fit for us…we want to invest in you!

We are offering a $5000 (USD) grant and production support to one winner.  Please submit your information below along with a brief description of your project.
Submission Due by 1st March 2023.

Submissions will be reviewed at Crucial Crew and by the APA San Francisco Board Members.  One winner only.

Terms & Conditions

  • Must be a Crucial Crew Member
  • Must be an APA Member. (Western USA)
  • Submissions must be non-commercial personal projects.
  • The winning project will be produced and documented by Crucial Crew at no cost to the project.
  • Grant money must be spent on the project and cannot be redeemed in cash.
  • Any cash issued must be accounted for.
  • The grant cannot be spent purchasing equipment for the winner.
