Black Public Media (BPM), the nation’s only nonprofit dedicated solely to media content about the black experience, has issued an open call to producers for nonfiction broadcast projects (individual programs or series pilots) and scripted or nonfiction digital web series.

The third round of BPM’s 360 Incubator+ will see as many as 10 teams contend for up to $150,000 in funding to help produce the pilots or funding reels of their broadcast or digital projects.

The program is designed to get quality programming and content into the pipeline and help move it to market.

“We are excited to offer the third round of the 360 Incubator+. With the success of past winning projects like My Africa Is and POPS, and the recent release of Read Awakening, we hope this round brings just as many exciting new projects and talented artists to public media,” said BPM Executive Director Leslie Fields-Cruz.

The 360 Incubator+ is a competition for development funds. Participants get tailored training and mentorship in proposal development, script writing, fundraising, distribution options, outreach, and more and work to complete a pilot or funding reel, a full project proposal and a robust fundraising strategy.

Producers with projects currently in the preproduction phase—on areas in BPM’s current content priorities of health in black communities, environment, mass incarceration, LGBTQ issues and immigration—can compete in the current round.
