New guidelines and free informational grant workshops are now available for the California Documentary Project (CDP), a competitive grants program that supports documentary film, radio, and new media productions that enhance our understanding of California and its cultures, peoples, and histories. Projects must use the humanities to provide context, depth, and perspective and be suitable for California and national audiences through broadcast and/or distribution. Eligible applicants can apply for research and development or production funding. Award amounts range from $10,000 up to $50,000.

Complete guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previously supported projects are available here.

The deadline to apply is Tuesday, October 1, 2013, 5 pm.
