Audio Content Fund
Closes in 21 days
The Audio Content Fund is a scheme to provide funding for the creation of original radio and audio production in the UK. The fund is part of a pilot Contestable Fund, financed by the UK Government, to support the provision and plurality of public service content.
The Fund is responsible for distributing a grant of up to £3 million which will be used to produce distinctive, public service radio programming that is traditionally more difficult to support on a commercial basis (such as documentaries, comedy, drama, events).
Bids must come from independent production companies that have a guarantee of broadcast on commercial or community radio, and it must be demonstrated that ideas would be too costly to make without ACF support.
