Apply for digital funding

What do we fund?

The Digital Media Fund is set up to support smart, innovative or experimental projects that make the most of opportunities offered by the internet and digital media to reach different New Zealand audiences.

We fund a wide range of content from webseries to mobile apps, from transmedia interactive experiences to websites. We have established three separate funding strands to address the different types of content and different levels of funding available. Read more about these on the What We Fund pages.

To get an idea of the types of projects we have funded previously, do a funding search, see a list of online projects or take a look at our showcases.

You can also read our Digital Strategy which outlines our goals and approach to funding for digital media.
