DEADLINE FOR PRODUCER PROPOSALS AND STATION RUNWAY SUBMISSIONS:
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011
Itâ€™s heating up. Producers and stations are flocking to apply for Localore, which will provide more than $1 million in support for makers to work with public stations on multiplatform storytelling projects.
More stations are coming onto the Localore Station Runway this week and nextâ€¦WLRN/Miami and WRVO/upstate New York are the latest to date. Producers, get busy watching them all and reaching out as you finesse your proposals to be one of the 10 selected to lead our station-based initiativesâ€”designed to expand local innovation capacity. See which local outlet is right for you. We provide a contact link for you to be in touch with them on the station profile page.
Stations, keep your options open! Open the door to talent and see what comes in. You can name up to three potential producers. The sooner you get your media up, the more eyeballs you'll attract.
