NZ On Air is now seeking applications for the third year of the Digital Content Partnership Fund.
A contestable fund for the creation and transmission of new multi-format audio visual New Zealand digital content.
Up to $1,000,000 plus GST. This is the third year of the planned four years of the Digital Content Partnership Fund.
In 2008 the inaugural Digital Content Partnership Fund criteria targeted content for children and youth. NZ On Air also required a broadcast outcome because legislation covering the necessary amendments to the Broadcasting Act had not then been enacted.
In 2009 a broadcast outcome was not mandatory as NZ On Air sought applications which would create content for local audiences who actively seek information and entertainment on platforms other than the traditional broadcast channels. Details of the projects previously funded under the Digital Content Partnership Fund can be seen on the New Media section of our website.
How and when?
Application deadline is 5.00pm, 9 April 2010. Submissions arriving after this date and time will not be accepted.
How will applications be considered by NZ On Air?
Staff will evaluate proposals against the criteria above. Independent assessors may be used. Recommendations will be made to the NZ On Air Board's June 2010 meeting and the Board's decision(s) will be advised as soon as possible thereafter.
