British Council scholarships on offer to emerging Australian creative talent

Australia’s best up-and-coming creative practitioners are invited to apply to win one of five scholarships offering the opportunity to connect with industry leaders in the UK, thanks to the British Council’s Realise Your Dream awards.

Now in its eighth year, Realise Your Dream is open to anyone working in creative fields such as architecture, visual arts, fashion, design, advertising, music, animation, digital media, performing arts, new media and computer games.

The scheme awards excellence and vision in Australia’s creative industries by providing financial and professional support to help emerging talent make professional contacts and expand their horizons in one of the world’s most vibrant cultural settings.

Five awards are on offer to Australians in the early stages of their careers. Each winner will be flown to the UK by Virgin Atlantic and receive an $8000 NAB Cash Passport from National Australia Bank to cover their expenses.

But the unique part of the prize is this: the British Council will tap into its strong network of UK’s finest creatives to help craft a tailored professional development programme for each winner that will provide valuable networking experience and mentoring.

Entries close close Friday 18 June 2010.
