We ask applicants to provide two references at the application stage:

Professional Referee: this is a written reference to include with your application and is to vouch for you in your professional capacity. It should be from someone in the industry with whom you have worked extensively during the last year. It should not be from someone in your company or someone who works with you on a daily basis.

All references should be on company letterhead paper and should bear the date. It should also include the name, company, job title and signature of the person giving the reference. 

We ask all applicants to submit the questions below for their professional referee to answer:

1.    How do you know the applicant

2.    Why is the applicant a good candidate for Inside Pictures 2021?

3.    In your opinion are there any areas in terms of knowledge, skills or personal development which we can help develop during the programme?

Character Referee: this is to vouch for your personal character. This can be someone from your company or the organisation you work for. Please include this referee's details and we will contact this referee after applications close.

We will contact all character referees before the interviews, so please make sure they are available to be contacted and that their details are correct. Failure to secure a referee will impede your application.

When choosing a referee, please note the following guidelines - the most useful referee is someone who: works or has worked with you in a professional context during the last year; is able to attest to your performance and character; is an international executive or producer of some stature; has some knowledge of what Inside Pictures is, and what it requires from participants.

Character referees need to be available to respond to our request for a reference some time between 22nd March and 9th April 2021.
