Program Venture Fund
The KUOW Program Venture Fund (PVF) provides special support for staff and independent reporters and producers to develop new programming focused on the Puget Sound region. Programs funded by the PVF can be a series of feature reports, documentaries or a variety of short audio pieces. The PVF accepts project proposals from producers and reporters three times a year.
Applications for Round 23 of the Program Venture Fund are due March 15, 2013 by 5:00 p.m. (PST).
To kick-start your brain storming here are a few subject areas that KUOW would like to cover in the coming year. But do not feel tied to this list of subjects; this is just meant to give you a little more direction. Feel free to submit ideas on completely different topics, whatever catches your interest.
1) Interstate Ties
What are some of the issues that tie the Puget Sound Region in Washington state with other bordering states or other states around the country? What are the issues that Seattle shares with other major northwestern cities such as Portland (OR), Anchorage, Vancouver (Canada), etc? The issues can be about anything of significance such as business, politics, culture, law, etc.
2) Native American Tribes
