ONE OF A KIND SCHOLARSHIPS

Check out some of the amazing opportunities that can help you build your business with One Of A Kind Online!
 

BIPOC SCHOLARSHIP

Earlier this year, we made a commitment to ensuring that the One Of A Kind community represented the diverse talent and voices on the Canadian craft scene. The fruits of this labour won't happen overnight, but as we build a new One Of A Kind, we will continue to examine ways we can make our brand platform more accessible and inclusive for all. As part of our first steps, we are thrilled to announce that we will be awarding up to 20 OOAK ONLINE SCHOLARSHIPS to new BIPOC applicants to the Winter Show. 

Want to Apply?

  • Just check the BIPOC Scholarship box on your One Of A Kind application.
  • Applicants must not have participated in a One Of A Kind event before.
  • Winners will be notified upon acceptance to the show.

LET'S DUUO THIS SCHOLARSHIP

Duuo Insurance understands the challenges makers are facing in these uncertain times, so we partnered up with them to help the maker community build their business with One Of A Kind Online this holiday season. Together, we awarded fifty $100 scholarships to makers for our virtual Winter Show.

[ CONTEST CLOSED SEPT 18 ]

 

But that's not all! Next, they are offering FIVE Winter vendors the chance to win $1,000 IN CREDITS TOWARDS THE SPRING 2021 SHOW. When you participate in One Of A Kind Online this Winter, you'll be able to encourage shoppers to ❤ your profile to get connected and stay up to date with you throughout the show.
