NZOA May funding round information

Posted Tuesday 02 Feb 2021

Take note all producers intending to make a funding application to the Scripted, Factual, and Platform streams of the NZ Media Fund or Industry Development Fund for the May round.

NZOA says that, given the high percentage of Factual and Scripted funding that has already been allocated in the current financial year, the May round is considering applications for a limited number of initiatives:

May funding round priorities

Factual, Scripted and Music applications to the Youth RFP (up to $2.5m). (Find the RFP details in the item above).

Factual and Scripted HEIHEI returning series (up to $2m) - Invitation Only - This round will also accept applications for HEIHEI returning series that launched on HEIHEI after the Aug/Sep 2021 Children's funding round deadline.

Development - The Content Development funds have been fully expended for both supported and diverse development. Therefore, NZOA will not be accepting any Content Development applications in this round.

Industry Development applications will be considered as well as new Cultural Sector Capability Funding applications.
