Bids for Audio Content Fund money require production companies to form relationships with broadcasters ahead of placing their bid, so that their submission can include that all-important Commitment To Broadcast letter. Often, radio stations will make their broadcast opportunities known to all, and invite contacts from people with ideas. Where possible, we will list those opportunities on this page and provide links for more information.

All information is published in good faith and without intent to prejudice the Independent Funding Panel’s decision-making process. Information is accurate at the time of publishing. This page will be updated as often as is humanly possible. This is not an exhaustive list – it’s just the opportunities that have been shared with us – if you want your opportunity to be listed here, please email us.
