Free PSA Air-time for History, Arts Groups

The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance announced a new partnership today that promises $500,000 in free media for local cultural organizations on the national cable channel Ovation, which is newly available in the Philadelphia region.

You can read the full announcement here, or read a good summary on the blog of Philadelphia's Chief Cultural Officer, Gary Steuer.

Local cultural groups have until May 6, 2010 to submit either 1) ready-to-go, 30-second public service announcements; and/or 2) content for one of the six themed "interstitial" short programs that Ovation is producing. You can find the submission/application form here.

So far, Ovation is planning one of the six themed short programs to focus on "history and historic sites," though on the actual application form, "science" sneaks in there in one mention.
