The British Council is helping talented people realise their dreams in the biggest and best way possible! Realise Your Dream supports highly talented emerging practitioners in the first ten years of their practice and is the longest running professional development platform in the creative industries.
There are five Realise Your Dream awards for 2013, one of which is a people’s choice award which is different from past years. The 5 winners will each receive $5,000 cash to help pay for expenses while in the UK, a return flight from Sydney to the UK, assistance from industry experts in the UK to plan a tailored professional development programme and an introduction to high profile contacts in the UK.
You must be between the ages of 18-45 to apply and in the first 10 years of your practice in the one of the following disciplines: advertising; animation; architecture; computer game design; design; digital media; interdisciplinary arts; fashion; film and video; literature and writing; music; the performing arts; photography; publishing; television and radio production; video art; or visual art.
The application opened up at 9 am on 17 June 2013 and close promptly at 11:59 pm on 28 July 2013. There will be no late applications excepted.
The lengthy application process from the previous years has been changed to make the process easier to get through. The first entry is just two questions and two links then if it is a good matched based off of those questions and links, more information will be asked of you.
