2018 Applications


Based on the successful program last year and enthusiasm from the community to continue the program, The Township of Centre Wellington and Regional Tourism Organization Four (RTO4) are launching the 2018 DESTINATION ANIMATION STRATEGIC CO-INVESTMENT PROJECT.

To enable experience and product development implementation, the Elora & Fergus Destination Animation Project has been launched in order to create truly unique experiences for both visitors and residents. The Project focuses on enabling feasible projects that are highly shareable and have high impact on the destination. Submissions need to clearly outline how each project will leverage social media sharing to help promote the event, and also enable social sharing in real time by participants, thereby effectively marketing the destination by virtue of the experience itself. Social media metrics and reporting will be a key component of each final report.

The Elora & Fergus Destination Animation Project launched in 2017 with $13,000, and resulted in a combined investment of approximately $40,000 in 2017 for a total of 6 unique and highly successful projects.

For 2018, there will be an estimated $10,000 available for proposals. Applications may be for any amount from $500 up to $5,000. The Destination Animation Selection Committee will review and award the proposals.
