The cultural heritage of any society begins with a spark of imagination and the nurturing of talent. The Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund provides grants for Australia’s creators.

Copyright Agency’s Board is authorised by Copyright Agency’s Constitution to allocate 1.5% of its income to development projects that will support the Australian publishing and visual arts industries. This is known as the Cultural Fund.

The Cultural Fund supports a wide variety of projects which aim to encourage, and provide practical assistance to Copyright Agency’s members and the Australian cultural community.

The Cultural Fund is usually allocated to organisations running projects which will have a broad cultural benefit. The priority for this fund is to support innovation in the Australian creative industries and to develop local and foreign markets for Australian works.

Individual Australian creators and those working in the creative industries can apply to Copyright Agency Career Fund for grants to help them develop their skills and progress in their career.

Successful applicants will be notified approximately two months after the advertised deadline. Projects for which Cultural Funding is sought cannot commence earlier than this.
