The British Council is now calling for Australia’s best and brightest to enter the 2008 Realise Your Dream competition. It’s a professional development award open to all Australians aged under-30 who are involved in creative industries. Winning candidates will be flown to the UK to work with a mentor, and even get $8,000 to help live the dream. To go into the running, applicants need to demonstrate their creative potential, and tell us how they’ll benefit by connecting with Britain’s best. If they’re a winner, we’ll help organise a personally tailored work experience programme with a leader in their field.

In the past, placements have included fashion houses Luella, Burberry and Lara Bohinc; time with creative director Tom Dixon at Habitat; Zaha Hadid architects; BBC Interactive; advertising agency BB/Saunders; and textile designers Timorous Beasties, The British Museum, independent record labels - amongst many others.
