Screen Queensland to support mentorships for three diverse screen or games practitioners in 2018

Applications close 5.00pm Monday 18 June 2018

Screen Queensland will provide three outstanding early-to-mid-career screen or games practitioners $20,000 each, as part of the SQ Mentorship program, to support them to undertake a self-structured mentorship program designed to elevate their professional practice.

SQ Mentorship is a three-year program which commenced in 2017 and will be delivered until 2019, and is part of Screen Queensland’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in the screen industry.

Mentorships will be available for:

> One (1) female screen or games practitioner;

> One (1) Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander screen or games practitioner;

> One (1) screen or games practitioner from a diverse community, including people with a disability, people from a culturally and linguistically diverse background, LGBTQIA people, and regional Queenslanders.

The inaugural recipient of the SQ Mentorship was games producer Kim Allom in 2017. Kim’s mentorship took her to California and Berlin to be mentored by Blizzard Producer Kim Sellentin and Creative Director of Tru Luv Media Brie Code.

Applications will be accepted from Queensland early-to-mid-career talent working across creative and/or business roles in the screen or games industries.
