The priority for this fund is to support innovation in the Australian creative industries and to develop local and foreign markets for Australian works.
When considering applications to the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund, the Cultural Fund Committee gives priority to those that support innovation in the Australian creative industries to develop local and foreign markets for Australian works and to projects that are not supported by government funding bodies.
Current areas of focus for the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund include projects that will:
- provide cultural and educational institutions support to give individual artists, authors and publishers opportunities to develop their professional skills and develop new works;
- place artists, authors and publishers in educational settings and build awareness of their work in this sector;
- underpin export market development of Australian publishing and visual arts; and
- provide Australian content with a profile in the increasingly globalised online environment so that Australians can compete effectively on the domestic and international marketplace for creative works.
