Sources of Funding

Finding ways to fund your work is a difficult and time-consuming part of a freelancer’s life. This resource aims to make this process a little easier by providing an introduction to the different places you can look to get financial support for your project.

Grants can generally be defined as a source of funding for a project, usually from a non-governmental organisation or charity. They generally come in the form of one-off payments, and will provide you with financial assistance to a project that meets the goals of the organisation funding you. Funding can be aimed at a variety of stages in your project, including research, travel or post-production support. Depending on the grant, your project may be funded on the condition that the work is published by the funding organisation.
