#hellodigital are offering another 12 businesses the opportunity to receive hands-on training and borrow a 360 video camera for 2 weeks each.
The businesses can be from any sector and of any size. What’s important is that you can demonstrate how access to the 360 camera will provide a real benefit to your business. When you apply, you’ll be asked to outline how you hope to use it and to demonstrate that you have someone within your business who can commit to completing a project.
We’d really like to be able to share some of your work at #hellodigital and on social media when you are happy with it too.
Every business awarded access to a 360 camera kit must attend the training day in Inverness on the 24th January and put a plan in place to make use of the camera in the 2 weeks that follow.
Please ‘Register’ in order to register your interest and receive an application form.
Deadline for applications: Monday 16th January
Training Event: Tuesday 24th January
Cameras to be returned by: Tuesday 7th February
