Closing date for applications is Friday 28 September 2018.

This Fund is open to all individuals/companies. There are no requirement for entrants to be UK-based, but applicants will be expected to attend both the launch workshop and further events later in the process as appropriate. In doing so, entrants will be expected to cover their own travel or associated costs; there is no travel bursary or financial assistance available from the Fund to attend these events.
