Announcing our 2021 Wildland Fire Digital Storytelling Micro-Grant Recipients!

The American Wildfire Experience is proud to introduce the following twelve talented wildland practitioners — recipients of our third annual Wildland Fire Digital Storytelling Micro-grant cycle.  Chosen from among many talented applicants, our selectees represent a cross-section of wildland firefighters and practitioners from all over the world intent on telling the story of wildland fire in creative, authentic, insightful and compelling ways.

Our digital storytelling grants are intended to help these wildland fire content creators/creatives–firefighters who are already creating and sharing their photography, videography, writing, and other creative endeavors with the broader wildland fire community–share their experience with fire on an even larger scale.  Each applicant was asked to create a project proposal that would help to tell the story of fire in an interesting and compelling way, and we are excited to see what they produce this season.  Click on the images below to read a short bio, synopsis of their proposed project, and examples of their current and previous work!
