How to prepare an application
Information you’ll need to provide:
A short summary of your story idea.
A more detailed description of you project. Dive into the heart of your project, whether that’s a teaser of what makes your story unique, the question your project will ask or a juicy hook.
60 Second Pitch Video
Create a short pitch video that tells us about you and your project! Enter a public or unlisted YouTube or Vimeo link to your 60 second pitch video. Please note: The podcast host must appear on-camera in the pitch video.
This is an opportunity to tell us more about how your project is increasing representation in front of and behind the camera/microphone. What choices are you making regarding your team, subject matter, interview subjects, writing, hiring and shooting.
Tell us why you want to make this project? Why is this project important to you? Why are you the best person to produce this project? What is your connection to the community involved? For example, if your project will address topics that are culturally specific, what is your connection to the culture being represented?
Your treatment should include a story outline for your entire series and brief 1-2 sentence description of each episode of your series.
Treatments that do not include an overview of the minimum number of episodes will be ineligible for consideration.
You will need to complete a draft of your budget including where you intend to spend your grant money. This is only a draft, and can be updated later.
