We are delighted to announce the ten Destination Local projects. These projects are jointly funded by Nesta, the Welsh Government and Creative Scotland.
Thank you to our selection panel: Will Perrin, Damian Radcliffe, Sarah Hartley, Mark Pearson, Jan Schaffer and Jeremy Silver. To find out more about the selection process Jon Kingsbury gives a broad analysis of the applications and offers some insight into why these projects were selected in his blog post here.
The projects will now work alongside the successful Technology Strategy Board projects and Nesta's strategic partners to develop the next generation of hyperlocal media services.
We received a total of 165 applications for Destination Local.
