New mentorship for outstanding Queensland-based female screen or games practitioner

Screen Queensland (SQ) will provide one outstanding female screen or games practitioner $20,000 to undertake a self-structured mentorship program designed to elevate their professional practice.

SQ Mentorship is a three-year program (2017-2019) delivered annually as part of Screen Queensland’s commitment to diversity and achieving gender parity in the screen industry.

Applications will be accepted from Queensland female talent at any stage of their career, working across creative and/or business roles in the screen and games industries.

Applicants must demonstrate clear transformational goals and design strategic mentorship programs to help achieve these goals. Mentors should be recognised as leaders and experts in their field and should be committed to the program of activities proposed by the applicant.

The make up of the program is entirely up to the applicant but at the core of all mentorships should be meaningful engagement, knowledge and skill-sharing between the mentor/s and applicant.
