Applications are now open for the British Council’s most popular programme for emerging creatives working in any field, Realise Your Dream (RYD). Over the past decade, RYD has awarded more than 50 young Australian arts practitioners the unique opportunity to travel to the UK on a specially tailored professional development journey that takes in meetings, internships, special events and more. The opportunities are endless – many past winners have brokered deals and formed lasting connections with their creative heroes and major arts organisations while on their UK trip. And while everyone’s experience is different, they all agree that RYD helped kick their careers into orbit! This year, Realise Your Dream will still offer the same prize of:
Return economy flights to London, courtesy of Virgin Atlantic
A fully tailored professional development programme, designed in consultation with each winner
$5000 spending money
But, we’ve made some improvements:
A shorter, easier application process
A London-based expert in the arts, to help devise the winners’ programmes
A more exciting award night – with opportunity for finalists to explain their work in a two-minute ‘pitch’
A new People’s Choice category in which the public can help choose one RYD winner!
Applications are open from 17th June 2013 to 28th July 2013.
