New international bursaries for UK bloggers

The British Council is thrilled to offer a new opportunity for talented UK arts bloggers and writers to travel internationally.

Bloggers have had a huge influence on UK performance, but opportunities for paid work or career development are few and far between. To address this, we’re piloting a programme awarding bursaries to three UK bloggers – enabling them to have an international experience, develop their skills and build connections outside the UK.

The winners will spend time in either Lagos, Romania or a country of your choice, meeting new contacts and discovering the richness of cultural exchange. This opportunity also includes two hours of mentoring with a member of our judging panel, led by Lyn Gardner. We ask winners to produce one or more pieces of work about performance inspired by their visit – to be published by the British Council, by themselves or by another publisher.

We're looking for arts bloggers who live in the UK and have at least two years' experience of blogging, writing, vlogging or podcasting about arts. There's full information about how to apply on our website. Get your applications in before midday on 29 November 2018.
