How to apply
Applications for Signal Boost 2022-2023 have now closed.
We’re asking applicants to create a short piece of audio in response to the theme ‘colour’.
This is an open brief, and we want to hear your own interpretation of this theme and how you bring it to life with audio. What does “yellow” sound like? What does “purple” mean to you? You could explore colour in relation to art, fashion, food, language, cultural identity, race, politics, or whatever else sparks your creativity and curiosity.
For your audio response: in less than three minutes, we want you to demonstrate how you would approach the theme and turn it into something captivating and listenable. Think of it like an audio teaser or trailer for a movie that doesn’t (yet) exist, or a pitch to a studio.
Don’t worry about it sounding perfect; we just want to get a sense of your creative approach to audio. Feel free to use the voice memo app on a smartphone for this task; equally, feel free to go wild with all the sound you can muster!
Applications close 9am Monday 10 October 2022.
If you aren’t able to produce an audio recording that gives an example of your creative approach, please contact us ahead of the application closing date to discuss possible alternatives.
