Immersion Prototypes: Invitation to Apply

South West Creative Technology Network are looking to invest in prototypes that use creative technologies to deliver original immersive processes, experiences, products or services. The making phase will run through April, May, June with showcasing at the end of June 2019. We anticipate awarding grants of between £20k and £40k.
We are excited about innovative uses of technologies that engage users in immersive experiences that are brave, ethical, connect us to one another and create value. The network is rooted in the creative industries but aims to make connections into other sectors. Our programme is designed to build creative capacity, generate shared knowledge and maximise potential for specific commercial impact.

How to apply?

Please read the full Immersion Prototype: invitation to apply before completing the online application form. We will continue to update our Immersion Prototype FAQs.

Get in touch with Hannah Brady, Producer at Watershed if you have any questions or want to talk to us over the phone or on Skype.

We aim to be as inclusive as possible and work to accommodate all access requirements. We will openly discuss and tailor how we do things to support you as best we can. We welcome applications from BAME, LGBTQI, Deaf and disabled practitioners. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to present their idea at a pitching day on week of 25 Feb.
The South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN) is a £6.5 million project to expand the use of creative technologies across the region. The network will offer three one-year funded fellowship programmes around the themes of immersion, automation and data. The grant is part of Research England’s Connecting Capabilities Fund, which supports university collaboration and encourages commercialisation of products made through partnerships with industry.
