Stage three

If your application goes through to the shortlisting panel, you will be asked to send us some content to bring your application to life. This can be a video or audio submission or a written biography with photos. This content isn't scored but will help our panel get to know you as a person.

We will request this by 19 April 2024 and you will need to send it to us by 26 April 2024.

Stage 3 guidance

The shortlisting panel will assess the applications and create a final shortlist to be reviewed by the Trustees of the Snowdon Trust.

We will let you know if your application has been shortlisted by the end of May 2024.
