The Concept Paper (First Quarter Requirement). A concept paper is a summary of a project or issue that reflects the interests, experiences, and expertise of the writer or organization. It generally serves the purpose of providing an in-depth discussion of a topic that the writer has a strong position on, usually with the intent of obtaining funding for that project from sponsors. The terms ‘concept paper’ and ‘proposal’ are often used interchangeably as they can be used for the same function. Here are the expected parts or sections of your concept paper:
Title Page. It includes the name of your YouTube channel, tagline, and logo. It serves as the cover page for the concept paper. It should be in colored print, however still in a business and professional appearance.
Introduction (Use a catchier title for this section). It should include some information about the funding agency, the Philippine Information Agency. You need to demonstrate that you have done your homework and understand the mission of the funding agency and the types of projects that they support. Then you need to identify the agency you represent and how the missions of your agency and the funding agency mesh. Describe any other partner agencies that will be involved and their interest in the project. Your introduction should be in one (1) to two (2) pages.
Project Description (Make your YouTube Channel the title for this section). It includes the definition and description of your project. Three (3) to five (5) paragraphs are enough for this section.
Purpose (Goals and Objectives, use a catchier title for this section). Describe the problem or need that will be addressed by your project.
