Have you been regularly commissioned to make content (in any genre) or derive more than 25% of your income from any aspect of content creation? If so, you would be considered a professional and are not eligible to apply.
If you're still learning the craft and creating content is responsible for less than 25% of your income, then you’re eligible to apply. This may mean you’ve had work commissioned in the past or keep a regular social channel or blog of your own – but it isn’t your full-time gig.
We will be asking shortlisted applicants to outline their experience to date before selecting winners.
