KUALA LUMPUR: Applications are now open for Digital Content Grants under the Malaysian Creative Industry Stimulus Package 2022 (Digital Content Grant 2022) through the Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).
Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa (pic) said the grant, introduced last year, is aimed at promoting the continuity and sustainability of the country’s creative industry practitioners, in line with the new norms following the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I see this Digital Content Grant 2022 as very important in helping digital content creators turn their ideas into ready-to-market products.
“Content creators have a variety of interesting ideas but they are having a hard time getting started and getting funding.
“Therefore, I am confident that through the Digital Content Grant 2022, MDEC will not only provide access to funding but also assist them in producing marketable digital content as their ideas will be evaluated by a panel of industry experts,” he said in a statement on Wednesday (June 15).
The Digital Content Grant 2022 offers financing of up to RM50,000 to companies, enterprises and sole proprietorships or limited liability partnerships to develop digital content in the marketplace in the form of animation, comics, interactive media and games. – Bernama
