What Are The Creative Samples And Resume Requirements?

Please do NOT include ANY contact info (such as name, email, website, etc.) on your script or your art.  We ask that your script sample should be no more than 9 pages (10 pages in total with the title page – please follow application instructions for the title page). All scripts must be submitted in PDF format. Your script should be in 11-point Arial font, and it must highlight family-friendly original content for children (ages 12 and under). “Original” is defined as stories, characters and art should be your own, and NOT Encantos or anyone else’s characters. We’re looking for purpose-driven original characters and stories that inspire 21st century kids to learn 21st century skills!

What types of files do you accept?

All documents should be saved and uploaded as PDF files.

Can a Writing or Creative Pair Apply?

Unfortunately, no.  While you may be a dynamic do, Encantos can only accept individual writers and artists to our program. If you are in a creative partnership, you must submit a script or art that you wrote by yourself.

Can I Submit A Short Story Or A Manuscript?

We ask that you only send us writing that is in a script format designed for the small screen (i.e., linear television, streaming, etc.) or the big screen (an animated feature film, etc.).

Can I Submit Multiple Applications, Featuring Different Creative Samples?

While we appreciate the effort, in order to be fair to all we can only accept one application per person.

Will I Have To Work On The Creative Project From My Application During The Fellowship?

Yes, the goal of the Encantos Fellowship is to develop your creative project and we will be working with you on it throughout the program.

How Old Must You Be To Apply?

We believe good ideas can come from anywhere and we encourage kids of all ages over 16 to submit applications.  This includes students in high school, college, and postgraduate level programs.  If you are under 18, you must get consent from your parents or legal guardian.

Should Applicants Have Writing Or Artistic Experience?

No, professional writing or artistic  experience is not necessary to apply.  Encantos is a purpose-driven B-Corp and what we care most about is your creative passion, your cultural authenticity and your voice.   —what is most important is that applicants show a passion for writing. Our goal is to identify and nurture new writers from underrepresented backgrounds for children’s educational media. Therefore applicants cannot have extensive media writing experience, such as having written more than 6 episodes for a network or cable series.

I am not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident - can I apply?

While we are truly citizens of the world, unfortunately at this time the Encantos Fellowship is only accepting applications from those with U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.

Do participant have to pay for the fellowship?

Talent is everywhere. Opportunity is not.  That’s why we create the Encantos Fellowship, which is free of charge to apply and to participate. 

Will there be interviews? If so, when will the interviews be held?

Yes, when we open the Encantos Fellows Fall 2020 program selected applicants will be invited to take part in an interview process with the selection committee.

What days/times will the sessions take place?

The details for the Encantos Fellows Fall 2020 program have not been announced yet.
