Broadcast Content Fund

Development and production funding for broadcast projects by eligible Scottish production companies.

The Broadcast Content Fund aims to help the sustainable growth of Scotland’s broadcast production sector, encouraging the development of new projects, the scaling up of already successful activities and the production of commissioned programmes.

The Fund has an allocation of £3m for the period 2018/19 and will prioritise projects which have the potential to generate lasting benefits to build companies of scale, reflect or promote Scottish culture, creativity and diversity, as well as projects which offer significant opportunities to people currently under-represented in the screen sector.

The Broadcast Content Fund accepts applications for all genres of broadcast content including factual and scripted programming where there is a clear and demonstrable need for public funding.


Routes to Funding

  1. Broadcast Content Development Funding: Support towards the development costs of a single project or a slate of projects.
  2. Broadcast Content Production Funding: Support towards the production costs of a single project (one-off or a series).
