The IDM Fund: Marketing Support program provides funding for marketing activities that will amplify the visibility and financial viability of OMDC-funded interactive digital media projects when they are released/available for sale in the marketplace. The purpose of the Marketing Support program is to allow IDM Fund: Production program recipients to build an effective, wide-ranging, and successful marketing campaign for newly released products, in order to achieve increased revenues. 

Please note: the Marketing Support program is open exclusively to IDM Fund Production program recipients with upcoming product launches.

Deadline 

Continuous, closes January 31, 2018

Applicants are encouraged to apply for Marketing Support at least eight weeks before the completion of their market ready product, in order to have funds for product launch marketing activities available.

Funding Available

Successful applicants are eligible to receive up to $50,000, capped at 75% of the total costs for all activities. The minimum OMDC contribution is $15,000. Companies that can demonstrate needs and appropriate plans for larger-scale marketing activities may be eligible for an increased maximum on a case-by-case basis. Prior to submitting an application, please contact OMDC directly to discuss project eligibility.

Note: Full eligibility requirements and details can be found in the IDM Fund: Marketing Support Guidelines. Please read the guidelines completely before beginning your application. OMDC reserves the right to revise Guidelines and Application Forms.
