Call for applications - Gender matters: brilliant careers

Screen Australia recognises the importance and value of women in the screen industry, both in business and as storytellers. Screen Australia also recognises that in order to make a real difference to women’s participation in the industry, there needs to be a holistic integrated approach to people, projects and business. 

Brilliant Careers is a flexible and responsive initiative that aims to:

  • empower and increase the participation of women in the screen industry
  • stimulate ideas that will lead to the creation of business and industry infrastructure that is sustainable and self-generating
  • encourage proposals that will create viable career pathways and professional development opportunities to ensure ongoing renewal of women in the industry

Screen Australia are looking for proposals that are strategic about the “big picture” connections between people, careers, projects, business, marketplace and audiences.

The Brilliant Careers Fund is separate to other funding programs. Female applicants and team members are also encouraged to apply as per usual to all of other funds.

What funding is available?

You may request up to $250,000 per proposal. While this is the upper limit, we encourage a range of budget sizes commensurate with the scale of your idea. A lower ask might make your proposal more competitive.

Who can apply?

Eligibility is open to companies, industry organisations and guilds that have the capacity to implement and deliver on their proposal.

Previous recipients of Screen Australia’s Enterprise programs are eligible to apply, as long as the proposal that is part of this application is significantly different from their previous proposal(s).

All applicants must be an incorporated business with an ABN when applying. Applicants must also meet the general eligibility requirements set out in Screen Australia’s Terms of Trade.

All applications must be received by 5pm AEST on Friday 8 April 2016. Final decisions will be made on Friday 24 June 2016.
