ABC and AIDC Indigenous Documentary Placement: Submissions

June 3, 2022 - July 1, 2022

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), in partnership with the Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC), is inviting applications for the Indigenous Documentary Placement program for 2022, with a submission deadline of Friday 1 July 2022.

Now in its second year, the Indigenous Documentary Placement is designed to provide one mid-career Indigenous practitioner with a unique opportunity to undertake an extended placement with the ABC, Australia’s largest public broadcaster.

The successful applicant will be embedded in the ABC for a period of four months based in Sydney. The placement’s goal is to provide the practitioner with the opportunity to develop their skills in documentary and/or factual development and production within the context of a public broadcaster with a broader view towards creating employment pathways.

The placement will commence with the ABC in mid-August 2022. The successful candidate will receive an equivalent annual producer level salary of up to $94,620 per annum which equates to approximately $40,000 for four months inclusive of statutory superannuation contributions.

The participant will be contracted by the ABC. Practitioners from all states are welcome to apply and may be eligible to seek some additional relocation support from their relevant state film agency.

All Indigenous practitioners interested in the placement are invited to attend a virtual information session hosted by Kelrick Martin (ABC Head of Indigenous) on Friday, June 17 at 11am (AEST). The information session will provide practitioners with an opportunity to learn more about the placement from ABC representatives, to ask questions, and hear from filmmaker Daniel King, the recipient of the 2022 Indigenous Documentary Placement.
