In response to feedback from applicants, Creative Scotland’s Open Fund for Individuals will move to a simplified online application process from Tuesday 10 August 2021.
Retaining its core purpose to support creative activity from individual artists, producers and other creative professionals in Scotland, as well as its assessment criteria, the refreshed application process will offer the following improvements:
- An online application portal allowing applicants to edit and save applications, and to check eligibility before submitting
- A proportionate application process, with questions and word limits based on the activity proposed and level of funding being sought
- A more straightforward approach to accepting applications in video and audio formats for those with access needs
- A published list of specific priorities to increase transparency in the panel decision making process
