Ontario Creates is seeking applications from qualified industry professionals to be jurors for the Ontario Creates Interactive Digital Media (IDM) Fund program. The program is adjudicated by external industry professionals at two levels:
The ideal candidate will have senior industry knowledge and experience and will be unlikely to have any projects that may present a conflict of interest with respect to the role of the specialist industry advisor or juror.
The Ontario Creates IDM Fund was developed to support Ontario-based interactive digital media companies by providing access to the final piece of funding required to move content projects into production. The fund also supports early stage development of concepts through the Concept Definition stream. The IDM Fund is intended to support the creation of high quality, original, interactive digital media content products that make a positive contribution to the Ontario economy.
Jurors and specialist advisors will receive an appropriate honorarium based on the volume of applications received. The honorarium provided takes into consideration the review time required and is paid out at the end of the commitment.
“Confidential Information” means all information (whether oral, written, in computer readable format or otherwise), data and material acquired by the juror from Ontario Creates or in connection with the performance of their duties for Ontario Creates.
To submit an application, please complete the application form below. You will be asked to upload your resume.
Ontario Creates strives to compose juries that reflect diversity in Ontario as described in the Government of Ontario’s definition of diversity and/or gender parity. The provincial definition states: the dimensions of diversity include, but are not limited to: ancestry, culture, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, language, physical and intellectual ability, race, religion (creed), sex, sexual orientation and socio-economic status.
Ontario Creates is grateful for your interest in participating in this important process. It is anticipated that a substantial number of industry experts will respond to the Call for Application. In light of this, only those selected to be a juror for the Ontario Creates Interactive Digital Media Fund will be contacted. Ontario Creates maintains an active list of potential jurors.
