Application

British Council is looking for thoughtful, creative and unusual digital solutions. So, even if you only have the very seed of an idea, as long as you have given it real thought, applications are encouraged.

To help, we recommend thinking carefully about the following before you apply:

  • The need your idea addresses – be clear about which one of The Global Goals you are focusing on and the problem your idea could help to solve.
  • How people will benefit – tell us why your idea matters to the people it is designed for and how it has the potential to positively impact thousands of lives.
  • Why it’s compelling – we need to feel that you really care about making a difference so tell us the story behind your idea.
  • The competition – show us you have a clear understanding and awareness of any competitors who may be working on similar products and tell us why your idea is different.
  • The tools and resources needed to turn it into a product – it doesn’t matter if you haven’t worked with technology before. What does matter is a clear understanding of how your idea will work in the real world.
