XR Stories’ internships offer businesses based in the Yorkshire and Humber region the opportunity to engage with talented students and graduates on a funded basis. Internships run for up to 12 weeks and take the form of a creative project, with an emphasis on emerging technologies. The projects must be completed by December 2022. Full funding is available to support businesses wishing to host an intern.

Applications are open to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the creative industries, who are already working in emerging technologies or who are aspiring to do so. This year, our focus is on addressing the current technical skills shortages in the creative industries.

To be eligible businesses must be registered in the UK and be based in Yorkshire and the Humber. You must have fewer than 250 FTE (or equivalent) employees and a turnover of less than £50 million.

Funding is available to businesses operating in all screen industry sectors including film, TV, gaming, animation and other digital media agencies as well as businesses who are looking to include emerging technologies as part of their business model and work in the future.

Applications close on Wednesday, 31 August 2022.
