The OMDC Interactive Digital Media (IDM) Fund is designed to provide Ontario interactive digital media content companies with access to the final piece of funding required to move their content projects into production. Successful applicants will receive a non-refundable contribution of up to $150,000 to a maximum of 50% of the project budget to create a market-ready interactive digital media content product.
The objectives of the program are:
- to support the creation of high quality, original, interactive digital media content products by Ontario companies;
- to assist in capitalizing Ontario-based interactive digital media content production companies;
- to provide flexible funding options that support partnerships between Ontario interactive digital media companies and companies from other creative cluster industries; and
- to contribute to the financing of projects that make a positive contribution to the Ontario economy.
It is anticipated that the OMDC IDM Fund will support projects from a range of genres, delivery platforms and budgets. Consideration will be given to the cultural and industrial benefits of each project. In assessing the economic impact of a project, OMDC will take into account immediate results including Ontario job creation and retention and level of Ontario expenditures. Long term results such as potential for commercial exploitation will also be a factor.
Deadline: August 27, 2012 5:00 pm
