Applications are open for the 2013 Voiceless Grants Program.
Now in its tenth year, the Grants Program has awarded a combined total of over $1.3 million in funding to universities, local councils and non-profit organisations for projects with a focus on improving the lives of animals in Australia.
Voiceless is once again looking for projects that challenge the institutionalised cruelty of animals, with a view to making animal protection the next great social justice movement.
Last year Voiceless awarded almost $110,000 to 12 different projects including research into chicken vocalisations, an animal law conference, a national meat-free initiative, a magazine for tweens and market research into Australians' attitudes towards animal protection.
Applications for the 2013 Grants Program can only be submitted online and are due by 5.00pm Friday, 12 July.
In keeping with Voicelessís core areas of work, applications will be considered only for projects that fall into one or more of the following categories:
* Factory farming;
* The commercial kangaroo industry; or
* Building animal protection as a social justice movement.
In addition, all projects must be relevant to animals in Australia and either change attitudes or build awareness about animal suffering, encourage the public to take action for animals in their personal lives or work to modify or create new laws or policies to further animal protection in Australia.
