This is an opportunity that Arts students, or anybody interested in Arts careers, would be crazy to miss. The Sky Academy are looking for 5 members of the website ideastap.com to award a £30,000 scholarship to, with a year of mentoring on top.

The scholarship has been won before by an enormous range of entrants, with talents as wide as opera, creative producing, and shadow puppetry. The five fields entries must fit into are performing arts, dance, music, visual arts, creative producing and creative writing. The scholarship is a £30,000 fund to help pursue your talent, as well as a year of mentoring to help you reach full potential.

The Sky Academy is an initiative from Sky, the television and internet company. Bella Vuillermoz, Director, Sky Academy said: “Sky Academy is all about helping young people fulfil their potential and so we are thrilled to continue our support of emerging UK and Irish artistic talent. Supporting the development of young artists is crucial to the future vitality of the arts in the UK, and we are proud to once again be working with Sky Arts, and IdeasTap, to do this. We can’t wait to support another five brilliant young artists.”
