Thank you for applying to the Holman Prize!

Hello 2019 Holman Candidates!

If you are receiving this email, it's because we received your application and have confirmed that you are an eligible candidate for the 2019 Holman Prize. Congrats! We're thrilled to have 111 eligible candidates from six continents, with each project varying widely in focus and reach. It's great to see you all thinking big and thinking outside of the box. Check out your fellow 2019 candidates' pitches on our YouTube playlist.

We' had many of you reach out to us about your candidate pages on the Holman website — we'd like to assure you that all of these will be up by the end of the week (it's not an automated process, so it takes us some time!).

However, there's plenty of self-promotion you can do in the meantime! Whoever has the most YouTube 'likes' on their pitch video by March 25 will be our People's Choice Semifinalist, and automatically progress to the Semifinalist round. The semifinalist round is where you put together a detailed proposal and budget for your project. Share your individual YouTube links far and wide between now and March 25! Whoever among you progress to the Semifinalist round will have a chance to submit your complete budget and proposal by April 26, so start thinking about how to fill out the nitty gritty of your project.

We're so thrilled to have you all as part of our growing and international community of ambitious blind people. Keep up the good work of challenging stereotypes about blindness, since that's really what this prize is all about! As always, if you have any additional questions please read our FAQ or email holman@lighthouse-sf.org.
