Screen Australia and Google Australia have partnered again on the Skip Ahead program, now in its seventh year. The program is designed to support established Youtubers who would use the extra funding to further support their creative ambition and production values.

Youtubers with an existing audience are eligible to apply for up to $120,000 in production funding per project. Both scripted and documentary applications are welcome for Skip Ahead 7, and up to four projects will be funded. Applications are open now until 5pm, 16 September.
