Applicants are invited to be part of a framework agreement for dubbing animated series and programmes for S4C's children's services including Cyw and Stwnsh.
S4C anticipates the need to license approximately 6 series or single programmes for children per year. S4C will be responsible for selecting and committing to an agreement with the rights owner for any animated series or programme that S4C wishes to broadcast.
S4C is seeking a limited number of suppliers (a maximum of 6 and a minimum of 3) to form a framework of providers who can dub animated programmes into Welsh as required. Companies within the framework will be notified regarding work on a project by project basis.
A 4-year agreement (2023 to 2027) will be offered with the option to extend for a further year (2028) on the same terms. S4C will review the agreement and the performance of each successful applicant after the first year and we reserve the right to terminate the agreement at any time following such a review.
We invite independent production companies, with experience of dubbing and adapting these sort of programmes, to express interest by emailing email@example.com by Midday the 12th of May 2023. Each company expressing an interest will receive a document via email by the end of the same day on 12th of May 2023, outlining further details.
