Submission Guidelines
Applicants must submit a 300-400 word proposal (due Wednesday 10 July) outlining what aspect of Australian print culture they would focus on if successful. The proposal and resulting essay must be original, not based on an existing or previously published piece of writing, and entirely the work of the author.

Proposals must be accompanied by one example of previously written work (maximum 3000 words) as support material; and a separate coversheet clearly stating their name, address, email address and telephone number. All documents submitted should be in Word .docx format, at size 12 font. Note: The selection panel will assess all proposals by blind submission, so applicants must remove details of authorship from the proposal and support material.

Shortlisted applicants will be asked to provide a more detailed 600-700 word outline with a clear indication of the final structure of their proposed essay (due Friday 26 July).

This opportunity is open to Australian and international applicants. Submissions will only be accepted by email, addressed to the General Manager:
