The call for submissions is now on for the 2019 Vision Maker Media Public Media Project Fund.

Vision Maker Media, the Lincoln, Nebraska organization that engages Native people to share stories, is inviting proposals for projects intended for public media that represent the “cultures, experiences and values of American Indians and Alaska Natives”.

Projects at any production stage will be considered for financing, including films in the research and development, production and post-production phases.

All projects submitted for consideration should be relevant for a broad audience for potential national broadcast, and should encourage outreach and community engagement beyond transmission.

Assignment of exclusive broadcast rights for four years and one year off-air recording rights for educators are included in Vision Maker Media’s Production License Agreement.

Full submission guidelines can be found here, while applicants can submit their projects by following this link. Submissions will be accepted until March 1, 2019, 11:59 p.m. PT. Successful applicants will be notified in June.

Founded in 1976, the Nebraska non-profit works with Native producers to develop, produce and distribute educational content, support training to increase the number of American Indians and Alaska Natives producing programs for public broadcast, and advocates for policies that support those two distinct groups.
