About the program

EGA is offering four individual members the chance to participate in its fellowship program in Los Angeles this Fall 2021. Participants will receive an expenses-paid opportunity to broaden their professional understanding of the entertainment localization industry from the perspectives of content creators, distributors and the professionals who support major motion picture productions.

The one-week-long program will include networking events with local studios, service providers, content creatives and executives. Fellows will attend special shadowing sessions with original version counterparts in directing, sound mixing, and writing.

The program is scheduled to take place the week of November 15, 2021 and is open to all eligible individual members of EGA. An individual member will be selected from each of the following disciplines: subtitling, adaptation, dubbing direction and audio mixing. Applicants will be screened by an EGA selection committee based on their past work, professional references, academic backgrounds and an essay submission.

Once selected, they will officially enter the fellowship program which extends beyond the trip and includes a one-year-long journey of professional growth through continued education, mentoring and ultimately helping transition the next fellowship class.

EGA will take fellowship applications from all eligible individual members until the application deadline Wednesday, April 28, 2021. All individuals with a membership active prior to the application deadline are eligible for program participation.
