Brisbane Creatives - Pitch Your Creative Idea For $25,000
Vanessa Murillo Vargas | On 21, Dec 2014
Have a creative based idea that you think has the potential to be big?
Then the Brisbane City Council wants to hear from you!
Dust off the creative book of ideas that you have kept hidden away for so long and why not pitch one of those ideas to the City Council for your chance to receiveÂ $25,000 in cash as part of the 2015 Innovation Award.
That’s right! The Brisbane City Council is seeking creatively inspired ideas in the hope of developing the city into an innovative, cutting edge urbane jungle.
The Innovation Awards are a testament to Brisbane’s growing creative culture and are all about nurturing ideas, entrepreneurship and flare in our community.
Last year’s winner Emily Craven created a Smart Reads, a GPS interactive map that used QR codes to unlock adventures for its users.
This idea gave its users the ability to see Brisbane through a different light and developed an innovative and interesting way to see the city as its users could read or see information about the place in real-time.
Those who are shortlisted will be able to pitch their projects at the Rhizome: Creative Arts symposium in March 2015, where the applicants will have their pieces reviewed by like-minded creative professionals.
Eligibility is dependent on two factors, whether you live or have a business in the Brisbane Local Government Area that has an existing Australian Business Number (ABN) or whether you work in an arts creative industry based in Brisbane.
This year they are looking for someone or a business to invest in and make their dream come true so why not make that you.
Applications are open from now until midnight on Monday 12 January 2015.
To enter, submit yourÂ application to pitch your innovative idea online.
