Preview – The Young Audiences Content Fund – What Next?
Greg Boardman is producing the CMC Debate around the closure of the Young Audiences Content Fund and how that leaves the industry and the children’s audience.
Fifteen years of market failure reduced the funding for UK-originated children’s media to an unprecedented low level. The Young Audiences Content Fund provided an important lifeline but its untimely end leaves kids’ TV with a new funding crisis. The government is looking at what will come after the YAC Fund and campaigners and industry organisations are weighing in with their opinions.
If you’ve got a desire to shake things up around funding for kids’ TV, a vision for how you would build a YACF 2.0 or if you just want to make sure UK-made kids’ content has a future, then this session is not to be missed.
The DCMS will be listening. Under the guidance of BAFTA Kids Chair, Faraz Osman, CMC delegates, alongside leading figures for the children’s industry and media strategists, will have the opportunity to contribute ideas about creating a sustainable production model for the future.
