Creative Industries Federation

CIF logoRIG is an enthusiastic member of the Creative Industries Federation and proud to support its excellent work on behalf of one of the UK's major economic sectors.

RIG has submitted a paper to the DCMS consultation on a contestable public service content fund. 
It was originally proposed that the fund should be for TV, however RIG is arguing that radio should also be included, as it will –provide great value for money and mean the fund reaches a wider range of audiences.
RIG Managing Director Will Jackson says:
 “Audio indies from around the UK are keen to apply their excellent track record of producing award-winning public service content to work more with commercial radio. Indies have been developing new relationships with a range of players, and including radio in the contestable fund can help build an appetite for more PSB in the commercial sector and elsewhere. Together we can innovate and take more risks on content for underserved genres, for the benefit of the UK audience.”
Radio bids would be made in partnership with distributors such as commercial radio, and Radiocentre has joined with RIG in arguing for the fund to be extended to radio.
