John Brabourne Awards

What The Awards Support

The John Brabourne Awards Talent Development Programme has been supporting up and coming talent in Film and TV since 2007, and we now have over 100 alumni from all areas of our industry.

We provide individual financial awards up to £5000, which can go towards production projects, scriptwriting and development, education and training, and technology or equipment needs.

This isn’t a definitive list so please contact us to discuss your plans and let’s have a chat about how we may be able to help further your career. Here’s how to contact us.

Who should apply?

We help anyone who is talented and driven but who has faced hurdles in developing their career. This could be through lack of finances, accident or illness, or caring responsibilities.

Whatever your situation, if you are struggling to take yourself to the next level we encourage you to apply. Find out more about how to apply here.

If you work in any part of the Film and TV industry – that isn’t front of camera performance or presentation – and have at least two years professional experience, our programme can financially support a wide range of projects and work situations.

Areas where we have helped before include:

  • Production and development finance
  • Post production and festival distribution
  • Living and travel expenses
  • Childcare
  • Tuition fees
  • Short training programmes
  • Secondments

If your situation differs from the above, we may still be able to support you. Contact us today if you have any questions before deciding whether to apply.

Please note

Awards are made to individuals rather than teams, projects or organisations. Funding cannot be provided retrospectively. For example, covering production costs for a completed short film.
