In an effort to encourage public participation and promote civic pride, the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment will seek to involve government agencies and non-profit organizations in the support of the production of programming which is informative, educational and culturally diverse through the creation of underwriting opportunities. These opportunities will be non-commercial in nature, and will not endorse a particular person, belief, organization, product or platform. These opportunities will comply with all approved resolutions orders and ordinances by the Mayor, City Council and District government. Conforming to the industry standard governing credit content, underwriting acknowledgements will fully and accurately disclose to viewers funding participants as well as production and consulting staff. Pre-existing/prepackaged underwriting acknowledgments will be reviewed to ensure that the elements of a particular credit taken as a whole are not deemed to be in conflict with the OCTFME underwriting guidelines. District, Regional, state and federal agencies, and non-profit organizations may utilize local underwriting credits that contain promotional material.
