While Canon appreciates every customer's business, our Program is based entirely on the merit of the individual program or activity. As this is an amateur program, it does not qualify for support.

Canon USA generally does not provide direct support for workshops of this nature. We do offer special pricing on some of our products to traditional educational facilities e.g. certified colleges and schools. Visit our website at http://www.usa.canon.com/edu for more information.
