The South African Media Innovation Program has opened another round of applications for ventures within the media space that they can support.

Is your media business passionate about trying new approaches to local news and information? Is your business an independent media company, a non-profit organisation or a new venture that is just kicking off? Are you a journalist or media maker with a side project which is still mostly a great idea but which you would be willing to leave your day job for if you got some support? Then you should consider submitting an application.

SAMIP is seeking applications from organisations that are building innovative news and information products that either explore opportunities to reach and connect with broader audiences through digital platforms and technologies or those that are developing new revenue generation opportunities or sustainable business models. The $4 million, three-year media initiative aims to accelerate digital media innovation among independent media outlets.

The program will provide the funding and mentorship needed for independent media sector to deploy new solutions and reach new audiences.
