Instagram Australia First Nations Creators Program

Instagram are partnering with Screen Australia’s First Nations Department for a second year of the First Nations Creators Program.

The First Nations Creators Program aims to foster Indigenous talent, amplify their voices online and help create long term career prospects for First Nations creators in social media and digital content creation.

Up to ten emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander digital creators will be selected to take part in this intensive in-house program over three days, which provides training, mentoring, career connections and content funding. Each creator will then be challenged to create their own series of Reels for Instagram, with content creation and delivery to happen within 6 weeks after the completion of the three day program.


To be eligible for Instagram and Screen Australia funding under this program, applicants must:

  • identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander
  • be over 18 years old
  • be an Australian citizen or permanent resident. Applicant companies must be incorporated and carrying on business in Australia
  • have an Instagram account and several years’ experience in social media or digital content creation
  • be able to join the program in person, in Sydney from 17 October 2022 – 19 October 2022
  • meet the general eligibility requirements set out in Screen Australia’s Terms of Trade
  • meet Meta’s standard partner safety and security checks
