Media Cymru is offering up to 10,000 of seed funding to creative freelancers and SMEs in the Cardiff Capital Region and across Wales who have ideas for new products, services or experiences in the media sector.

The Media Cymru Innovation Pipeline is offering funding for research and development of ideas relating to virtual production, new formats and ways of creating content, gaming, immersive storytelling, bilingual production, and fresh approaches to delivering the news.

Financial backing will allow Welsh creatives the chance to take very early-stage ideas through to fully validated projects. Over a three to five month period successful applicants will also be supported by experts from the Media Cymru Consortium PDR and the Alacrity Foundation.

Following the successful completion of seed-funded projects, applicants may also be eligible to apply for further support via Media Cymru's Development Funding, which is due to launch in July 2023.

Lee Walters, senior producer and funding manager, Media Cymru, said: This first round of Media Cymru Seed Funding is a real opportunity for creative thinkers to explore early-stage ideas through a supported period of research and development (R&D).

We know that Wales and the Cardiff Capital Region is brimming with creators who have great ideas, and we can't wait to hear them, help turn them into reality, and work together to accelerate innovation in the media sector in this part of the world.

More details are available at Media Cymru's website.
