How to apply

Creative thinkers and doers can apply for funding to contribute a 60Months campaign proposal.  Submissions should made in text, using the prompts below, and can be accompanied by supporting material.

A steering group reviews and selects ideas to commission.  The steering group will endeavour to select a range of submissions which represent the entire UK and political affiliations.

The contributor agrees to deliver the work in an an agreed period of time.  A contributor can only receive funding once.

60Month supporters broadcast the monthly campaigns to their own networks on the 8th of every month (ie on the monthly anniversary of the 2017 election). Each month supporters will be sent instructions prior the 8th, giving them something to do and keeping them involved.
