e.tv is looking for documentary proposals to honour Nelson Mandela; wants proposals only from producers from outside Gauteng and Western Cape.

Broadcaster e.tv is looking for TV documentary proposals from producers outside of Gauteng and the Western Cape and want producers, production companies and people interested in making 23-minute documentaries about Nelson Mandela to submit proposals.

As part of the 2018 centennial celebrations in honour of Nelson Mandela, e.tv wants documentaries from independent TV producers about individuals or groups that capture the spirit and values of Nelson Mandela.

Producers from the Eastern Cape, Free State, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape and North West can submit proposals for a 23-minute documentary to e.tv by 18 August.

According to e.tv the documentary has to relay a message that is proudly South African and no less than 15% of the dialogue must be in languages other than English and which are unique to the province.

What e.tv needs in the proposal is a detailed treatment of the proposed documentary; a description of the locations where the documentary is to be shot and the names of individuals to be interviewed; the proposed name/s of the presenter or commentator, if any; production budget incorporating a detailed description on personnel, equipment and resource requirements; and information which confirms that the key personnel working on the documentary are based in the province concerned.

e.tv says it will accept programme proposals only from South African production companies which have a registered business address in the province concerned and must provide proof of previous productions completed.
Proposal and all supporting documentation should be submitted to the email address of Proposals@etv.co.za and the submission deadline is 17:00 on 18 August 2017.
