Applications Now Closed: WFTV Pat Llewellyn Bursary Fund


The WFTV Pat Llewellyn Bursary offers development funding for a factual or factual entertainment TV project, which can be either a one-off or a series and is open to all women regardless of their experience.

We want to make this award as diverse and inclusive as possible, so it is open to all women – even those who have never made a TV programme before.

There are four bursaries available – two for Welsh candidates, that covers either women working in Wales or those of Welsh origin, and two for women anywhere else in the UK. Each winner will be awarded £10,000 and to apply could not be simpler.

Applicants just need to supply 250 words about their project and then a further 250 words about themselves. Applications close on Thursday 31 October.

Applications close: Thursday 31 October.

More information about applying

It is free to apply, but you may only submit ONE application with ONE idea. If you submit more than one application, or more than one idea in a single application, ONLY your first submission/idea will be considered.

For more information about submitting an application to the Fund, please read our FAQs-document, which includes information about what is classified as a factual entertainment or factual TV project, as well as tips for completing the application.

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by members of the awarding committee in November, and the Bursary winners will be announced in November 2019.
