Funding Ideas: From original concept to funded content.


This webinar will explore how an idea can go from, just an idea, to a developed content proposal using real examples from content makers who have been successfully funded to complete their projects. Two community media content producers Jo Pratt (4EB) and Neil Turner (PAKAM) will join Maddy Macfarlane (3PBS broadcaster and trainer and CBF Content Grants Advisory Committee member) and Dean Linguey (CBF Grants Support Team member) to explore the path an idea can take to become a compelling funding application.

Areas covered include community consultation, planning, documentation, the dreaded budget and reporting.
