Can you help us to delve deeper into the current state of funding for documentary? The Whicker's World Foundation and Sheffield Doc/Fest kindly ask you to fill in a survey to establish whether the cost of making a documentary is rising or falling.

We are trying to work out how significant an £80,000 ($116,000 USD) award, the Whicker’s World Foundation's top grant, is in today’s world. We want to understand the funding pressures you are under.

We would be extremely grateful to all who wish to contribute to the survey and will be entering completed surveys into a prize draw to win a Full Festival Pass for the 2016 Festival.

All individual answers will be anonymous, with the results shared with you and used to create what we hope will be a useful debate about the funding of documentary.

The survey closes on Monday 18 January at midnight (GMT) and we thank you in advance for your input in regards to this important subject surrounding documentary filmmaking.
