Upstarts Mentor Application

Apply to Mentor in Upstarts


The ICAD Upstarts Programme is a mentorship programme which helps to prepare emerging creative talent for the industry, introduces the industry to their work, and develops their skills and thinking along the way. Upstarts is also an equal opportunity initiative that is designed to create pathways to the creative industries for underrepresented communities.
We would like to invite mid-level and senior creatives to apply to mentor a 2024 Upstart. ICAD Upstarts is a highly effective, proven  training opportunity for emerging creatives but Upstarts also represents an opportunity for mentors to develop their leadership skills and enables succession by preparing them to one day step into the role of creative director.
