Realise Your Dream - Call for submissions
$10,000 & A TRIP TO THE UK TO BE AWARDED TO
UP-AND-COMING AUSTRALIAN CREATIVES
- Applications open for the British Council’s 2012 Realise Your Dream awards-
Celebrating 10 years of nurturing Australian creative talent, the British Council’s Realise Your Dream awards are now bigger and better than ever.
This year, three lucky winners will be awarded a $10,000 cash prize and a return trip to the UK, where they will be given the chance to meet their creative heroes and to experience all the cultural richness the UK has to offer.
Realise Your Dream is a unique opportunity for people working within the first 10 years of their career, in any creative industry – from theatre to publishing, visual art to music, digital media to industrial design, etc.
Unlike many awards aimed at Australian artistic practitioners, Realise Your Dream allows its winners to choose their own direction once they get to the UK, whether it’s getting behind the scenes at the Edinburgh Festival, hanging about the studio observing a prominent artist at work, attending meetings at major arts organisations. The British Council will draw on its wide network of contacts to help winners realise their ‘dreams’.
Realise Your Dream entries open Monday 23 April 2012.
Realise Your Dream is a British Council initiative, in association with Virgin Atlantic, BBC Knowledge, triple j, NIX Co, Boccalatte and Show Group.
To find out more, applicants should head online to www.realiseyourdream.org.au.
Entries close Sunday 3 June 2012.
