Creative New Zealand understands that the Canterbury earthquake on Tuesday 22 February will affect some people’s ability to meet upcoming closing dates for contestable funding.
What to do if you need an extension
People who have been affected by the earthquake and who require an extension please contact Rachel Driscoll on firstname.lastname@example.org or (04) 473 0184. We will work with you to provide an extension or an alternative means to submit your application.
What to do if some parts of your application cannot be completed
We have set up process to manage situations where some elements of an application are unable to be completed due to the earthquake, for example letters of support or confirmation of Christchurch venues.
Please submit all completed sections of your application and proposal by theclosing date and also contact Rachel Driscoll on email@example.com or (04) 473 0184. She will provide you with a reference number so that support material that arrives after the closing date can be matched with your application. It will be important that material arriving after the closing date is clearly marked with the reference number so it can be correctly matched.
Anyone who is concerned about the disruption to mail and courier services in Canterbury and how this will affect submitting their application should also contact Rachel Driscoll on firstname.lastname@example.org (04) 473 0184. We advise keeping a full copy of the application, keeping a receipt of the postage and where possible sending applications on a traceable delivery service.
