NAPT Announces 2012 Open Call for Media Makers

Deadline: Friday, March 16, 2012

Native American Public Telecommunications, Inc. (NAPT) announces a March 16 deadline for proposals from media makers. With funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), the NAPT Public Media Content Fund will award support to video projects with significant Native involvement–particularly projects that profile Native American leaders, activists and artists–and help bring the projects to national broadcast on Public Television.

Projects in any phase of production are eligible to apply for funding with NAPT. Awards for research and development range from $5,000 to $20,000, awards for production or completion can be up to $100,000 and New Media awards range from $5,000 to $20,000. NAPT does not fully fund programs, and awardees are required to seek additional funding from other sources. Projects funded through NAPT will be considered for additional distribution opportunities such as educational and home DVD distribution through VisionMaker; theatrical; non-theatrical; television (free, pay syndicated and video-on-demand), multimedia and Internet broadcasting (including podcasting and streaming).
