The WellcomeTrust Co-production Awards support TV, radio, games or film projects that engage (as a whole or in part) with biomedical science and its impact on our lives in an innovative, entertaining and accessible way. Co-production Awards provide grants of up to £40,000 for up to three years of funding.
The Awards fund projects that take an original approach to their subject, experiment with ideas, and have the ability to reach and entertain a large UK audience. Projects must demonstrate the potential to captivate and enthral an audience. They should be aimed at a large 'entertainment-seeking' rather than a 'science-seeking' audience.
Your project should primarily be aimed at a mainstream UK and/or Republic of Ireland audience in the first instance, although the subject matter can be international. Successful applications to the Co-production Award scheme will demonstrate a robust financial plan and true partnerships with the funders and distributers needed to drive quality and guarantee audience attention.
How to apply: To see all details including eligibilty and contact information please see the Wellcome Trust website.
Deadline: 5pm, 16 Oct 2015. Funding decisions will be made approximately two months after the deadline.
