RNZ says it has had plenty of interest regarding the current and upcoming General Audience funding rounds for Te Māngai Pāho and NZOA.
Here's RNZ's update on those rounds:
Te Māngai Pāho - General Audiences 2 [Open]
RNZ Commissioning will only be looking at supporting returning series as a Primary Platform for this round. However, we are open to discussions about (Secondary) Platform support for projects that are successful in progressing to Stage 2 with TMP.
Please email your short pitch to email@example.com if you are interested in RNZ as a Secondary Platform, but only if you are successful in progressing to Stage 2 (applicants notified by TMP from 6 September).
NZOA - General Audiences 2 [Round Opens 1st September]
RNZ Commissioning will not be looking for additional programmes to support as a Primary Platform into this round as we currently have a full slate we're already working with. However, we are open to discussions about Secondary Platform support.
If you would like your project considered for Secondary Platform support please send us your pitch and what Platform(s) are considering Primary support by 4pm, Monday 12 September to firstname.lastname@example.org
Secondary Platform support will be prioritised for projects (particularly for rangatahi) that have applied extended thought (including developed ideas and budgeting) for a unique form of digital output for RNZ.
