NZ On Air invests in public media for many audiences. We find and support great audio and visual content that holds a mirror up to New Zealand and our people. We do this through the platform-neutral NZ Media Fund which has four streams.
We will invest around $40m in the 2017/18 year in scripted content. This includes audio/visual drama, comedy, animation or any other content that requires a planned creative approach.
A wider than ever range of factual content for diverse audiences has been supported in the latest NZ On Air funding decisions.
NZ On Air has invested in a swathe of new local content for primary aged children; most of it will be found on a new online home for children’s content*, a collaboration between NZ On Air and TVNZ.
NZ On Air and the Canada Media Fund (CMF) have announced the renewal of their partnership, now in its fourth year, to encourage the coproduction of digital media content between Canadian and New Zealand creators.
