WFTV Pat Llewellyn Bursary Fund now open for applications

Women in Film and TV is now accepting applications for the second round of the WFTV Pat Llewellyn Bursary Fund.

First launched in 2018 in memory of the award-winning producer, the 2019 Fund will award four successful applicants £10,000 each to develop their factual entertainment or factual TV project; match them with an industry mentor to support them along the way; and offer the chance to meet with key decision-makers who have the potential to ‘greenlight’ their idea. The Fund is a joint collaboration between WFTV, BBC, ITV, Channel 4, All3Media and The Welsh Government.

Applications are open to any woman with a unique project and a passion for TV. Owners of production companies may apply, but their annual business turnover must be below £1m.

To celebrate Pat Llewellyn’s Welsh roots, and to encourage other women from Wales to follow in her creative footsteps, two places this year will be held specifically for any woman either born in or living in Wales, or with a Welsh parent.

Find out more and apply.

The deadline for applications is Monday 30th September 2019.
