An Invitation to Tender for Welsh-language Magazines

29 Apr 2015

The Welsh Books Council is pleased to announce that it’s seeking tenders for the provision of Welsh-language magazines for the period between April 2016 and March 2019.

The grant currently supports a variety of interesting titles and the hope is to see this continue and develop over the next franchise period.

‘This is an interesting time to be publishing Welsh-language magazines,’ said Elwyn Jones, Chief Executive, Welsh Books Council.  ‘We look forward to seeing how the current publishers see their titles develop over the next three years and to seeing what kind of new ideas will emerge.’

‘We recently undertook a similar exercise with the English-language magazines,’ said Dr Lucy Thomas, Head of the Council’s Grants Department.  ‘We had a lively discussion and a number of new ideas were presented. It’s an interesting time to be considering how your magazine might develop in light of the challenges and numerous opportunities in the relationship between the printed magazine and the digital world.’

The closing date for the applications is 2 July 2015. The full guidelines for the process can be seen on the WBC website at  http://www.llyfrau.cymru/grant/grantcym/canllawiau-guidelines?diablo.lang=eng
