For Ontario publishers, the deadline looms for the Ontario Media Development Corporation's Magazine Fund. Applications for 2012-13 are due Wednesday, September 12 for the fund, which offers up to $75,000 to Canadian-owned and -controlled, Ontario-based magazine companies with the aim of assisting strategic business and marketing initiatives.
For 2012, the fund is offering support for a limited number of digital-only magazines and increased emphasis has been placed on seeing greater innovation from all applicants, whether in print or digital.
All applications are done via an online portal and corporate registration must be made before commencing an application. Applicants may apply for up to two projects, though each must have separate application forms.
