The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) has announced details of 2021 funding allocations under its Sectoral Learning & Development programme and its Sponsorship Scheme. Funding of €646,000 has been approved by the BAI to support a range of activities.

The allocation of funding to a range of industry networks to support their various learning and development activities is a core part of the BAI’s work under the strategic objective of Enhancing Innovation and Sectoral Sustainability. Additional funding is also offered to support schemes for community broadcasters and temporary services, and initiatives for Irish language, gender, and other diversity projects.

The funding includes €342,488 which will be awarded to 16 industry and representative organisations under the Network Funding strand of the programme. WGI are one of those organisations.

WGI Director Hugh Farley says, “WGi is delighted to have received the support of BAI’s sponsorship fund and its Sectoral support. It is a recognition of the work we do to support our members and promote the status of the writer within the audio-visual sector. At a time of great uncertainty, the award gives us an opportunity to run events which are relevant and meaningful.”
