John Brabourne Awards - Applications from Fresh Film and TV Talent Invited

| Return|

The John Brabourne Awards support up-and-coming talented individuals to further their career in the UK film, commercial television and cinema industries. Those considered for support will have shown determination and motivation in pursuing their chosen career, however, may have suffered setbacks due to unforeseen circumstances such as health or finance.

Awards of up to £5,000 are available. The scheme has a small, limited annual budget and so between eight and twelve awards are usually made during each application round.

In the past, grants have been awarded to cover the following costs:

  • Production and development finance

  • Post production and festival distribution

  • Living and travel expenses

  • Tuition fees

  • Short training programmes

  • Secondments

Suitable applicants will be working in the UK film, commercial television or cinema industry in a 'behind the scenes' capacity; including the areas of publicity, finance and festival programming.

The next deadline for applications is 31 January 2020.
