Queensland attachment requirements

SQ recognises the need to support creative talent and crew as they grow their careers in the screen and games industries and believes that project-based attachments that create on-the-job skills can be an integral part of career development in features, broadcast, new platforms and games.

Screen Production and Game Development applications must budget for early to mid-career professional attachment opportunities. Attachments must be arranged prior to application. Applicants should contact the SQ Content team for details of current talent seeking attachment opportunities and to ensure their attachments are targeted at filling specific roles and skills shortages.

Attachments should be engaged for a minimum of 5 weeks and be compensated at least $1,000 per week for their time.

  • Projects applying for under $200,000 must budget for at least 1 attachment
  • Projects applying for between $200,000 up to $299,999 must budget for at least 2 attachments
  • Projects applying for $300,000 or more must budget for at least 3 attachments

SQ is committed to promoting diversity of opportunity in the screen industry as well as the diversity of screen stories. Alongside its commitment to gender equality and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representation, Screen Queensland supports the expansion of talent and stories from all genders, cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations.

Where Screen Queensland is the principal state investor, applicants are also expected to utilise Queensland talent for attachments through Screen Australia’s ‘Inclusive Attachment Scheme.’
