DCTV would like to announce a change to its procedure for members submitting
programme proposals for upcoming rounds of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland’s
Sound and Vision Scheme.
DCTV is introducing a strict policy of only accepting programme proposals submitted
no later than two weeks before the BAI’s cut off date for applications.
In recent rounds we have welcomed an increase in the amount and myriad of diverse

Open Round) is Thursday 12 noon, the 7th of April, 2015.
