For the third year running, Sky Arts in association with IdeasTap, is giving away five £30,000 bursaries and mentoring support to talented artists aged 18-30 from the UK and Ireland. The fund is aimed at helping emerging artists from different disciplines to take their work to the next level. In addition to the bursary, winners will be paired with relevant business and creative mentors from Sky and their industry. Applications are welcomed from 18-30 year olds from various disciplines within the arts including creative writing (this category includes playwrights and novelists but not screenwriters).
Additional information: to apply, you must be an IdeasTap member aged 18-30 on the closing date and either be a citizen of the UK or Ireland or have been resident in the UK or Ireland for the last five years. Either way, you must currently be living in the UK or Ireland to apply. You must only apply in one category – choose whichever category you think best suits your work.
How to apply: visit IdeasTap for full terms and conditions and to complete your application.
Deadline: Friday 6 December 2013 at 5pm. However, judges will be reviewing entries as they receive them so it is worth submitting early.
