The Content Fund

DCMS has announced an additional £5 million for the UK Games Fund as part of the Creative Industries Sector Vision – a joint plan between Government and industry to drive growth, build talent and develop skills across the creative sectors.

This new funding will offer £50,000 – £150,000 commercial games-for-entertainment content grants.

We intend to operate a rolling deadline, however we may close our application portal periodically for ten to fourteen days whilst we review batches of applications, re-opening as soon as possible. We also have fixed allocations of funding to administer within different financial years so we encourage early applications, in particular for financial year 2023/24.

For both these reasons, you should make your application as soon as possible.

If you have already had funding from us, it doesn’t rule you out from applying. In addition to the guidelines below we will expect you to provide a logical case that demonstrates a positive outcome from our previous grant and how that part of the journey has contributed to the present application.
