Over the past nine years, the British Council Realise Your Dream programme has gained a reputation as one of Australia’s leading creative industry prizes.
Renowned for recognising Australia’s most promising emerging talent, Realise Your Dream nurtures Australian creatives through targeted career development in the UK creative industries. By tapping into a wide network of the UK’s finest practitioners, the British Council helps open doors to the experiences winners most need to develop professionally and creatively while making lasting UK connections that will inform their work for years to come.
So far, 40 awardees have travelled to the UK with Realise Your Dream, many of whom attribute their continued successes in the creative industries to the learning and connections made whilst in the UK.
There are five Realise Your Dream awards up for grabs in 2011. Winners will receive:
