Media Development

We operate funding schemes to support the development of content for Irish audiences that reflects and shapes Irish society. This includes:

  • The Sound & Vision scheme;
  • Two new journalism schemes;
  • An archiving scheme;
  • We promote and support the delivery of Irish language content for Irish audiences; and,
  • We carry out media development activities previously conducted by the BAI, including the implementation of a Sectoral Development Programme, the development of media literacy initiatives to help audiences and online users to understand and critically analyse the media they are consuming and oversee measures to drive equality, diversity and inclusion in the media as well as supporting environmental, social and governance sustainability in the media.
