Call for Entries: LPB Public Media Content Fund

The Public Media Content Fund is an open invitation to independent producers to submit proposals for a program, limited series or short web-based digital video (of no longer than 20 minutes) on any subject that relates to or is representative of Latino Americans that is appropriate for public television and/or one of its platforms. LPB funding will average between $5,000 and $100,000 for programs of most genres, including documentary, narrative, performance, mixed genre or new media. LPB will consider funding projects at the production and post-production stage.
 
LPB is looking for projects that are relevant, have potential to engage a national audience and present a diverse range of subjects, issues and viewpoints that complement and challenge existing public media offerings. Projects should also aim to meet the current content priorities of PBS that include but are not limited to: Performing Arts and Drama, History, News and Public Affairs. LPB is especially interested in programs that address Latino arts and culture.
 
Projects should provide strong story-telling techniques that give voice to those not normally heard or seen and provide a lens to the history, arts and culture of the diverse Latino community. While proposals can take creative risks, selected projects must ultimately appeal to a wide variety of television and public media audiences. Projects that reflect personal or individual experience should have universal appeal.

Deadline: Monday, June 3, 2013 at 5 PM
