Sky Arts is offering five young artists £30,000 each to fund their work for a full year as part of the Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund - in association with IdeasTap.
Sky Arts recognises that theres an incredible amount of young talent in the arts today - but finding a way to get your work made is an ever-present challenge. The fund is designed to help bridge the gap between formal education and becoming a working artist.
Whether you want to direct a piece of theatre, choreograph a new dance piece, write a novel, record an album, create a sculpture or produce a live art performance, Sky Arts will give you the time and money to make it happen. They will also pair you with a mentor from Sky to help you develop your networks, skills and knowledge in the arts and the commercial sector.
Tell us how the Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund bursary can help take your work to the next level and you could be in with the chance of receiving one of five £30,000 bursaries, as well as an opportunity to showcase your work on Sky Arts be it on TV, online or on demand.
Two winners will be selected during this round of funding. The next round will open in early 2012 from which three further winners will be chosen.
The Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund is part of the Sky Arts Ignition Series, which seeks to collaborate with six arts organisations over the next three years in the creation of brand new works, and further expanding Skys support of the arts in the UK and Ireland.
Applications close at 5pm on Monday 19 September 2011.
