Scottish EDGE, the UK’s largest funding competition, launches its next round today with an all new online application portal, accessible at scottishedge.com. Applications to Scottish EDGE Round 11 will be accepted through the application portal until 6th September 2017 at 2pm, requiring a completed application and a short video pitch. All entries will then be assessed by a number of independent, expert panels before being shortlisted to participate in a Scottish EDGE semi-final or the final of our subsidiary competition categories, namely Young EDGE or Wild Card EDGE.
Also, we’ve teamed up with video marketing gurus, 29 Studios, to help capture the EDGE story in all of its exciting and emotional glory – and we need your help. Our ambitious joint project, the Cutting EDGE, will transform EDGE 11 into a fully immersive video experience. We are looking for raw unedited content, following YOUR EDGE journey! No expensive equipment is needed, just use that smart-phone you already have in your pocket. No editing required. Below is an example of some of the things that we would love you to film, but if you deem it a big moment then we want to see it.
