AMPIA and ROGERS MEDIA Announce Round Two of the Rogers Development Fund

The Rogers Development Fund will support established and emerging independent producers based in Alberta and Manitoba in the development of Canadian content productions

Rogers Media and The Alberta Media Production Industries Association (AMPIA) will be accepting applications to the second round of the Rogers Development Fund from July 15-31, 2013. The Rogers Development Fund is a revolving loan program which provides funding to support the independent producers of Alberta and Manitoba in the creation of new and innovative projects in television, film, and digital media. The Rogers Development Fund is available to individual Canadian producers or production companies who have been residents of Alberta or Manitoba for at least one year.

The first round in February, 2013, funded eleven candidates overall, seven candidates in Stream One, and four candidates in Stream Two.  Since then, the guidelines and application forms have been updated.

“The committee has opened the program to previous successful applicants.  The decision is based on producers constantly having new and exciting projects and the fund’s revolving nature.” said Bill Evans, Executive Director, Alberta Media Production Industries Association.

The fund will begin accepting loan applications on July 15, 2013; interested producers can visit ampia.org/funding/rogers-dev-fund (french version also available) for additional program and application details.
