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.
Drama and comedy with strong local flavours have received $15.5 million in support from NZ On Air in the first application round of the new NZ Media Fund.
Audiences who love documentaries and other factual content can now enjoy compelling New Zealand stories in more places than ever before.
NZ On Air has today released details of its plans to deliver great New Zealand content to New Zealand audiences over the coming four years in its new Statement of Intent.
