Critics fund for Wales

THE WALES Theatre Awards (Gwobrau Theatr Cymru) has a new crowdsourced Critics Fund to sponsor critics (including professionals) for travel throughout the nation of Wales to review its theatre, opera and dance. The fund also pays for tickets for the events the critics are covering and - in some cases - accommodation. For details, see the WTA website or contact Mike Smith mike@mediasmith.co.uk

The fund does NOT intend to give any money to people who write for any organisations that should pay them but doesn't, or that doesn't pay expenses, thereby limiting where a reviewer can attend a performance. It's intended for young journalists and freelances to gain experience of writing reviews.
