SECTION 8: Sponsorship And Promotion

Producers of public access programs through E-TV have the right to solicit sponsorships under these guidelines:

8.1 "Sponsorship" is defined as goods, services, or grants in aid of a production provided to a program producer by a third party, not to include salary, pay, per-diem, or any form of profit paid to the producer(s) or crew.

8.2 An acknowledgement of sponsorship may be made, but any acknowledgement of sponsorship shall be made only in the following manners: character generation, display of logo, and/or spoken audio at the beginning and/or end of the program in the same style as the other program credits. The two production methods in which sponsorship may be displayed must follow one and/or the other of these two formats:

8.2.1 Special thanks to (name of sponsor) for (goods, services, or support provided), and/or,

8.2.2 This program made possible (in part) by a grant from (name of sponsor).

8.3 No price, product or service description may be included in the sponsorship credit.

8.4 Individual sponsorship messages shall be no longer than 15 seconds.

8.5 Sponsorship messages must be reviewed by the E-TV Studio Supervisor to ensure compliance with E-TV sponsorship rules before they are cablecast.

8.6 A maximum of 60 seconds of sponsor acknowledgements will be allowed before or after a single program, along with placement during “natural breaks” in programs.

8.7 E-TV will serve as a financial depository for the collection and release of funds for individual producers. Producers obtaining sponsorship funding for programming are required to use the funds within one calendar year.   At the end of one calendar year, the funds revert to E-TV and will be considered as E-TV revenue.

8.8 Producers must also submit an E-TV Access Sponsorship Application prior to the airing of any sponsorship message to ensure the sponsorship rules have been met.

8.9 Additional sponsorship rules and regulations are contained in the E-TV Access Sponsorship Rules Supplement.
