First Nations Creators Program for Instagram: Submissions

August 25, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Screen Australia and Meta Australia’s First Nations Creators Program for Instagram is back for 2022, with applications now open.

For the second year, the First Nations Creators Program will continue to foster First Nations talent, amplify their voices online and help create long-term career prospects in social media and digital content creation.

The immersive program, to be held at Meta’s Sydney Office, will provide in-person training, practical workshops, mentoring, career connections, equipment, and content funding, for up to 10 emerging digital creators.

The program will culminate in a special event to celebrate and bring together the broader First Nations Creator community.

To participate in this year’s program, creators must be over 18 years of age and identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

Creators must have an Instagram account as well as experience in social media or digital video content creation and be available to attend the program in Sydney between October 17 and 19. Creators who successfully complete the program will receive production funding of $5,000 and equipment to help them create a Reels project series for their Instagram account.

Each applicant must submit a short one-minute video about themselves. The content should include their social accounts, some detail on the type of content they create, as well as sharing their inspirations and goals, and some First Nations Creators they admire and follow.
