FUNDING PRINCIPLES AND GUIDELINES FOR THE ONTARIO INDEPENDENT PRODUCERS' INITIATIVE
As part of the licensing approval process for OMNI.2, Rogers Media Television made a number of important commitments to finance the independent production of ethnic/third-language documentary and drama programming, and to support multilingual/multicultural public service projects. Within the $50 million in total commitments, OMNI Television will dedicate $32.5 million to fund the independent production of ethnic/third-language documentary and drama programs. This will take place over seven years (2009).
OMNI Television will be reviewing proposals filed by independent producers seeking to access funds from these initiatives and to broadcast these programs on our stations. The purpose of this document is to outline the principles and guidelines to be used by OMNI Television in our review of program proposals submitted by independent producers.
