Funding for independent press available [France]

Posted on Mar 18, 2021 in Media Sustainability

Independent press publishers can apply for a grant.

Fonds pour une Presse Libre (FPL) is launching its second call for proposals.

The fund aims to support the development of an independent, pluralistic, innovative and economically viable press, regardless of the medium, print or digital.

Organizations must devote a large part of their coverage to political and general information, whether local, national or international.

Eligible projects include innovative editorial initiatives; website or subscription developments; new audience and business strategies; and projects involving at least two publishers.

FPL will provide a total of EUR70,000 in funding. This amount will be divided among three to four projects.

The deadline is April 18.
