1. Check your eligibility

Who can apply

To apply for Creative New Zealand funding, you:

  • must be a New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or organisation (overseas arts organisations or overseas-based New Zealand artists may be funded only if the project directly benefits New Zealand arts)
  • cannot be a Creative New Zealand staff member or a member of the Arts Council.

Late reports and breaches of agreements

We cannot fund you if you, your organisation, or key members of your team:

  • are more than 16 weeks overdue with a report for a previous grant or investment
  • are in breach of the conditions of a current funding agreement
  • were in 'default' of a funding agreement and sent in a late report in the six months prior to the closing date for a new application.

Overseas based arts organisations

Please note, overseas-based arts organisations are not eligible, unless they can show that their proposal will have direct benefits for New Zealand artists or arts organisations (the application will need to name an established New Zealand arts organisation and include an endorsement from them).

Specific criteria

To be eligible for consideration respondents will need to provide documentary evidence that they have:

  • demonstrated ability to operate a well-run and financially sound company or organisation 
  • key personnel with a track record of successful project management of literary events both domestically and internationally
