Grant applications are now being welcomed for the 2016 Shiers Trust Awards.
The Award offers grants of up to £2000 towards projects which research and conserve the history of television.
Launched in 2000, the Shiers Trust grant is named after George Shiers, a distinguished US TV historian.
Now in its 16th year, the grant has enabled a range of projects, including the digitalisation of back issues of the Radio Times and the creation of a website which presents a collection of historical consumer electronics images.
Applications can be for anything from research to project development, and all projects must make a valuable contribution towards the Trust’s aim of conserving television history.
Applications are now open and close on the 31 March 2016. For more information email RTS archivist Clare Colvin.
