The Pyrotechnics and Special Effects Operators Subsidy Scheme under the Anti-epidemic Fund (AEF) is open for application from today (October 23) to November 13 at 5pm.

The Scheme will provide a one-off subsidy of $7,500 to each eligible special effects operator (SEO) and assistant (SEA) holding at least one valid licence within 2020 (between January 1 and September 30) issued under the Entertainment Special Effects Ordinance (Cap. 560) and its subsidiary legislation, and who have not benefited from the Employment Support Scheme or any other sector-specific subsidy schemes under the AEF. Same practitioners holding different types of SEO/SEA licences should only be eligible to receive a maximum subsidy amount of $7,500.

The application details of the Scheme are available at the Create Hong Kong website (www.createhk.gov.hk).
