Applications due: Skip Ahead

March 21 @ 5:00 pm

Screen Australia and YouTube Australia have opened applications for the ninth edition of Skip Ahead, helping Australian YouTube creators develop their storytelling skills, and grow their creative ambition and production value.

This year’s initiative will allocate up to $120,000 for up to four YouTube projects, inviting both scripted and documentary applications. In 2024, for the first time, Skip Ahead will seek to support at least one project aimed at a children’s audience to premiere on YouTube Kids.

Applications for Skip Ahead are open to content creators who have either a current YouTube channel or channels with substantial existing subscriber bases and/or content that has achieved a minimum of 1 million views.

Successful applicants will also participate in a workshop to be held in Sydney (the week of July 22) and receive ongoing skills and development support, in addition to production funding for their project. For teams based outside of Sydney, travel and accommodation support will be provided for up to three team members per project.
