If you’re working on a project that has arisen or been developed to respond to the changed environment in the New Zealand writing and publishing sector due to COVID-19, you’re invited to apply for a Special Round of Contestable Fund Grants that opened today.
Each year we provide revenue from our Cultural Fund for a variety of awards and grants, including a Contestable Fund. In order to support the industry during the pandemic, we have released special funding of $120,000 for short-term projects that can be started now and completed by the end of September this year.
The annual Contestable Fund process supports a very wide range of projects, and this Special Round will do the same. The amount you apply for is up to you – the independent Selection Panel will be looking for creative projects that can make a difference at this challenging time.
Applications are now open and must be received before 4pm Thursday 29 April 2020. Successful recipients will be announced in mid-May.
