Alt-w Fund Production Awards (Scotland) Open to Applications
Funding is available to existing and emerging practitioners in Scotland’s creative industries to help them develop new artwork, devices and applications that can challenge the boundaries of new media creativity.
The Alt-w Fund offers Production Awards for creative industry practitioners in Scotland to develop new artwork, devices and applications that can challenge the boundaries of new media creativity.
The Fund seeks to encourage experimental and interactive practice, that makes use of technology as both a medium and a platform, and which recognises the changing role of digital culture within society. The Fund is looking for proposals for projects that take full advantage of the unique and ever evolving nature of new media practice to dynamically engage audiences.
