The first round of 2016 Production Fund grantees at the One World Media Awards in June.
Our funding gives those starting out in journalism or filmmaking the opportunity to cover stories in a developing country and bring underreported topics to a wider audience. While the workshops aim to teach practical skills on reporting in the developing world, the fund takes this one step further by giving you the chance to go overseas and put this learning into practice. Our fund provides each recipient with £1,000 of support.

The fund is not currently accepting applications. The next round of funding will open on 1st September 2016 with a deadline of 11.59pm on Sunday 6th November.
What are we looking for?
Our fund supports the production of media that tells engaging stories from the wider world. All projects must involve travel to a developing country.
The fund is open to proposals for non-fiction media across all platforms: film, radio, print, photojournalism, online and multimedia. The two productions you will produce can be a documentary and a trailer OR two different pieces of media on the same subject (ie. a news story and a longer feature article).
Please note that we are looking to support proposals for strong stories that could be published or broadcast in mainstream media outlets such as newspapers, magazines, radio/TV channels, professional news websites, etc. We do not fund dissertations or academic research.
In order to be eligible to apply for the fund, you must attend a University or public international reporting workshop run by One World Media. If your university is one of our partners, please check with your tutor to confirm whether we will be holding a workshop there this term.
Tickets for all workshops are now on sale by clicking on the links above, with early bird tickets available at a reduced price. Places are limited, so register early to avoid disappointment.
How to apply
The application process involves submitting a CV, a completed application form with story ideas and budget, as well as a letter from a professional reference. You must also demonstrate in your application how you will meet our Fair Filming guidelines.
For reasons of safety, we do not fund any media projects to countries that are marked ‘advise against all travel’ on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website.
