Grant applications are now being welcomed for the 2017 Shiers Trust Awards.

The Award offers grants of up to £2,000 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 17th 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 2017.

More information about the Award and the application process can be found here.
