New online application system

The Simon Cumbers Media Fund has a new online application system. This system replaces the old PDF application form which was emailed in with all required documents attached. The new system allows you to upload all required documents in one place, to track the progress of your application and to edit it online ahead of the deadline. Applications by email will no longer be accepted.

To apply to the Simon Cumbers Media Fund main scheme, go to and click the ‘apply now’ button at the end of page.

Create an account by clicking the ‘sign up’ button. You will only need to create an account once. This account can be used for any future applications to the Fund, so keep your sign in details safe.

Once you have confirmed your registration, you will be brought to grants page. Click ‘view grants’ to see what round is open.

You can then click ‘apply now’ for the open round and you’ll be taken to a page outlining all requirements. You can look through all application requirements and forms before completing them. Top tip: click ‘save and exit’ rather than ‘save and submit’ until you are sure you are finished editing the application. Once you click ‘submit’ you will no longer be able to access the application.

If you have any questions relating to the online application system, please email
