Content at the Festival is spread across six, 45-minute periods each day and staged across 25 venues, which include purpose-built marquees and classrooms.
Please note that completing the application does not guarantee you a session. During this round of applications, around 100 sessions will be accepted. The Festival typically receives about 500 applications for these 150 sessions. Unfortunately, this means we have to reject 80% of the applications. We appreciate the time it takes to apply to speak at the Festival, and we truly value every application that is submitted.
All submissions are considered by the content team for their suitability, how they fit into the overall shape and content of the Festival, how they overlap with other sessions and how they serve our diverse audience. The content team will commence reviewing applications in November. Applicants will be informed of the content team’s decision by the end of November. The decision of the festival content team is final.
