      Furthermore Program Offers Grants in Nonfiction Publishing

        Deadline: September 15, and March 15, Annually

        An initiative of the J.M. Kaplan Fund ( http://jmkfund.org/ ),
        the Furthermore program supports nonfiction book publishing about
        the urban experience; natural and historic resources; art, archi-
        tecture, and design; cultural history; and civil liberties and
        other public issues.

        The program seeks work that appeals to an informed general audi-
        ence; gives evidence of high standards in editing, design, and
        production; promises a reasonable shelf life; might not otherwise
        achieve top quality or even come into being; and "represents a
        contribution without which we would be the poorer."

        Applicants must be 501(c)(3) organizations. Grant recipients have
        included civic and academic institutions, museums, independent
        and university presses, and professional societies. Trade publish-
        ers and public agencies may apply for grants in partnership with
        an eligible nonprofit sponsor. Applications from individuals are
        not accepted.

        Grants range from $500 to approximately $15,000 each and may
        support writing, research, editing, design, indexing, photography,
        illustration, and printing and binding.

        See the Furthermore Web site for complete program information
        and application form.

      Social Equity Venture Fund Invites Entries for Film Competition

        Deadline: September 15, 2008

        The Social Equity Venture Fund ( http://www.sevenfund.org/ )
        is accepting entries for Cinéma Prospérité, a film competition
        designed to showcase successful models of enterprise-based
        development work.

        The competition invites amateur and professional filmmakers from
        around the world to submit their short films (two to five min-
        utes) telling stories about real people working to end poverty
        through enterprise-based solutions. Videos should be suitable to
        be posted online in forums such as MySpace TV, YouTube, etc. The
        video should use the best film techniques to showcase the story
        of an entrepreneur -- to show the story of what odds this person
        has overcome, what impact they have had on the world, and how
        they have managed to achieve their goals. Profiled entrepreneurs
        should be engaging in for-profit, sustainable, and ethical busi-
        ness practices.

        The program will award a grand prize of $20,000 to the top-ranked
        video ($10,000 to the filmmaker, and $10,000 to the profiled
        entrepreneur). A second prize of $10,000 ($5,000 to the filmmaker
        and $5,000 to the profiled entrepreneur), and a third prize of
        $5,000 ($2,500 to the filmmaker and $2,500 to the profiled entre-
        preneur) will also be awarded.

        The top five submitted videos will be ranked by the online
        Cinéma Prospérité community. An expert jury including experts
        in entertainment, business, and economic development will award
        the final prizes.

        Judging will happen online from September 15 to September 31,
        2008. Visit the Seven Web site for complete program information
        and submission procedures.
