The deadline to apply for the 2012-2013 Canada Periodical Fund Aid to Publishers program is just over a month away. Applications must be in by December 12,2011.
In addition, Heritage Canada has announced a change to its definition of a "listing," which could affect some titles' eligibility for the grant.
Currently, "a listing that contains opinions and analysis is not considered a listing by the Canada Periodical Fund." The definition will be expanded next year to include listings that do contain analysis. Since the Aid to Publishers and Business Innovation grants exclude periodicals whose editorial content is more than 50% listings, the new definition could mean some currently eligible magazines may exceed the 50% threshold in 2012-2013.
