Benefits and track record

To be eligible for Creative New Zealand funding:

    • recognition from peers or experts
    • achieved a degree of critical or sales success
    • specialised training or practical experience.

Who can't apply

We are not able to consider proposals from organisations funded by a government agency, tertiary institution or local authority unless the proposed activity goes beyond the core or contracted activity for which they receive funding.

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
