  • I speak very little English. Will this be a problem?
    To be eligible, your submission must be in English. Our judging panel will be comprised of English speakers, making it impossible to fairly judge submissions in other languages. To get the most out of the mentorship, you will need to be able to communicate with your mentors in English.
  • Can professional Content Creators apply? Am I considered a professional?

    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.
