Other Things to Note:
- Applicants are obligated as a condition of funding to include the appropriate logos and acknowledgment in all materials created in a FACTOR-funded project. Please review the Logo and Acknowledgment Guide for specific instructions. For ads that are shorter than 30 seconds, FACTOR will allow the abbreviated acknowledgement “Funded by FACTOR.” For longer ads, FACTOR will accept “Funded by FACTOR and Canada’s Private Radio Broadcasters.” Remember, the failure to provide appropriate logos and acknowledgment could result in a loss of some or all of your funding.
