The Film and TV Funding Award is awarded annually to an emerging filmmaker from anywhere in the world with the most promising pitch for a director-led documentary which fulfills the core criteria detailed below. The Whickers Film and TV Funding Award is one of the most significant documentary awards in the world.
The Whickers were established in 2015 to fund and recognize original and innovative documentary. They seek to use the generous legacy of our namesake, pioneering broadcaster Alan Whicker, to support emerging film and audio documentary-makers in the production of authored programmes and to recognize exceptional audio that has already been broadcast. The Whickers are comprised of three annual awards: the Film & TV Funding Award; the Radio and Audio Funding Award; and the Documentary Audio Recognition Award.
A main award worth GBP 80,000 and a runner-up contribution of GBP 15,000.
