The Creative Wales Development Fund includes two strands focusing on supporting projects within the TV and digital content sectors. This includes funding for games, animation, Createch and creative services too. This Fund is also aiming towards Wales based businesses that develop content, products and services in the Creative Industries. However, this Fund does not intend to support projects in the wider tech sector.
The Creative Industries is a fast growing part of the Welsh economy, creating jobs and wealth. The Welsh Government set up Creative Wales to further support the growth of the sector in Wales. The Fund aims to offer a dynamic and helpful service to the sector.
There is £1.5 million available for projects in this funding round. Projects will then be prioritised based on their ability to meet the funding criteria. This is outlined in the guidance note External Guidance Notes Issue 1 PDF.pdf (gov.wales).
This is a competitive fund and successful applicants could receive up to £25,000 for their project.
Before you apply you have the option to discuss your proposal with one of the Creative Wales Sector Development Managers via E-mail at CreativeWalesFundingSupport@gov.wales
You can apply for funding now until Monday 11th October at 12.00 noon.
The Fund is hoping to assess applications by the 5th November 2021 and confirm an outcome by the 12th November 2021.
