Author - in - Residence : Ideas Tap | Creative Briefs : Sky Arts Futures Fund

If you're not yet a member of Ideas Tap I recommend you sign up now. The amount of opportunities for young creatives on here is incredible. I thought I'd share this site for today's post as I was notified of a really cool brief from them with Sky Arts.

This site is not only a great place to show off your portfolio, there are Creative Briefs which could take you to your next step in life, Networking, Job posts from companies across the UK and Ireland, Career Development, Funding & other Opportunities.

Sky Arts, in association with IdeasTap, is giving away five £30,000 bursaries and mentoring support to talented artists aged 18 - 30 from the UK and Ireland.

In addition to the £30,000 bursary, winners are also paired with relevant business and creative mentors from Sky and their industry to support them along the way.

• Performing Arts : Theatre-makers including directors, spoken word artists, puppeteers and live artists
Dance : Dancers and choreographers
Music : Musicians, composers, songwriters and conductors
Visual Art : Including painters, sculptors, photographers, animators and digital artists
