Snowdonia is the largest of the three National Parks in Wales. It covers 823 square miles of diverse land and is home to 26,000 people. Wales' highest mountain, Snowdon, is at the heart of it, and attracts an increasing number of visitors every year.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for ideas that will record the rhythm of life within the park from one season to the next and celebrate and reflect the Welsh communities that live and breathe within its boundaries. Through people's stories, the content should explore the challenges faced by the Snowdonia National Park Authority in balancing the needs of visitors, the environment and the people who live and work in this unique area of Wales.
Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of:
• the strength of the stories
• what drives the narrative?
• who are the contributors?
• what will the style of the programmes be?
• what is the wider plan to engage with the viewers and create conversations on digital platforms?
You should aim to include the above information in your application.
We are looking for ideas for:
• a factual series for the main screen of between 3 - 6 episodes 60' long;
• individual factual programmes that offer a unique perspective on life within Snowdonia National Park
• "digital first" content that engages the wider audience and creates a national topic for discussion
• Dependent on the content, but we are looking to commission on a normal factual tariff.
Content ideas should be delivered by the end of 2020 for broadcast in the first quarter of 2021.
S4C has held initial talks with Snowdonia National Park, but for further information applicants should make an appointment to have a chat with the Park Communications Officer within a specific time window.
