Uprising Comes To Jamaica


The first iteration of Uprising: Jamaica has arrived!

BASHY's commitment to creating space for Jamaican creatives doesn't stop with the production of our issues. We want to equip current and the upcoming generation of creatives with the tools that they need to monetize their talents. We're welcoming content creators, photographers and writers who want to gain freelance print and publishing experience to our inaugural, specialized, one-day Uprising incubator program. 

You will learn practical skills to pitch your work to major publications and learn about the formal editorial process. At the end of this skills-based workshop, participants will leave with a pitch they can send to an editor and the necessary tools to monetize their creativity. Limited spots are available. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply below. 

The application takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete so we recommend you review the application's requirements and questions and draft your response in a separate document before filling out the online form. 

The window to apply opens from February 28-March 7th, 2019. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance into the program on March 8th. The program takes place on Saturday, March 16th before the Buju show (from about 10 AM - 3 PM).
