The Red Straps 2020 mentor program is uniquely designed to benefit hobbyist photographers and filmmakers who have an interest in pursuing a future career in the creative industries, and are willing to unlock new skillsets via access to inspiring young professional mentors who are already pursuing this career path.
Participants must be individual Australian residents aged between 16 and 24 years. Participants who are under 18 years of age must have the consent of their parent or guardian to accept and agree to the T&Cs of participation prior to registration. Participants must be able to commit to the duration of the Program, which will run from 6th August – 29th October, 2020.
Six free, online mentoring modules will be delivered to participants every fortnight in the closed Red Straps Facebook group from Thursday, 6th August. Each module will involve a video tutorial delivered by one of the Red Straps mentors, after which a creative challenge will be set for students to complete, submit for expert critique, and finesse over the next week. Participants will have the opportunity to ask mentors questions by leaving comments in the Facebook group.
In completing the initial program, 10 participants will be selected by the Red Straps mentors as cadets to receive an additional three-weeks of online mentoring to further elevate their skills and business acumen.
Red Straps courses, briefs, discussions and content submissions will take place within a private Red Straps Facebook group, accessible to only registered eligible participants. Participants are welcome to share outcomes of their creative briefs and provide updates of their personal development on their social channels.
