The producers receiving awards under the current scheme were confirmed in April 2020 when awards of up to £50,000 per year for 2 years were made. 

Priority was given to producers who have the greatest potential to contribute to the industry and would not otherwise have had the resources to focus on building a slate of ambitious projects.

Application guidelines

Guidelines from the previous round of applications can be viewed for reference.
