Applications are now open for the Copyright Licensing New Zealand (CLNZ) Contestable Fund Grants to support strategic projects that demonstrate New Zealand publishing sector growth.
Successful projects will have clearly defined and measurable project outcomes that align with the Cultural Fund’s objectives, including projects that:
- Develop the professional skills of writers, including those who write for an education audience
- Seek to grow export markets for New Zealand published content
- Demonstrate innovation in the creation and distribution of NZ published content
- Use online platforms to enhance the profile of New Zealand publishing and/or published content, including to international/export markets
- The Cultural Fund invests in people and projects that meet its objectives to:
- Protect – writers and publishers’ ability to earn revenue from their works;
- Support – the creation and production of new works and assist the commercial success of New Zealand works;
- Grow – the number of works created and skills in the industry.
- In 2021, an allocation of $75,000 is available.
- Applicants must be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident, or New Zealand based organisations.
- Applications for projects that involve several organisations or individuals are welcome. When making a collaborative application, applicants are asked to name one party as a lead applicant.
- Applicants may make more than one application and may apply for more than one project.
- The number of successful projects will vary from year-toyear and will depend on the individual merits of the applications received and the recommendations of the CLNZ Contestable Fund Selection Panel. In the event that any portion of the available funding is not allocated, this will be added to the funding pool available for the following years’ Contestable Fund.
