The CBMP Project Awards Program provides small awards of $5,000 to Stimulate and underwrite the development and production of local television and radio programming on HIV and related issues in the Caribbean. CBMP member broadcasters are invited to submit innovative programming concepts for consideration under the Awards Programme. Whenever possible, multiple broadcasters are encouraged to work collaboratively to develop joint proposals for consideration.
All CBMP Award funds will be allocated directly to broadcasters for production of HIV-themed content either solely or in association with other funding provided by the broadcaster. Funding awards will be contingent on the broadcaster’s willingness to provide final content rights-free to other CBMP broadcasters.
