This audio-visual content is rarely provided by national media organisations and is a key part of our support for community broadcasting.
In May 2018 we commissioned an independent review of funded regional media by former NZ Herald Editor Dr Gavin Ellis, you can read the full report here.
Following that review a fresh call for proposals was issued for civic journalism that would reach regional audiences.
Six projects have been supported – two new projects, and four existing projects will be supported for a further year, with total funding of $1.45 million. Read our media release about the six projects here.
You can check out all regional media projects on our Watch and Listen - Community section.
