Just to let you know that the announcement (below) was posted today on
the CNZ wesbite at
*Changes to the way we fund websites*
We apologise for the delay in publishing the following information.
We recognises that the internet and digital technologies are
increasingly prevalent activities and Creative New Zealand has a role in
supporting New Zealand artists and practitioners to engage with, and
use, the internet.
From 1 June 2009 the following guidelines will apply to Creative New
Zealand’s support for the funding of arts activities that make use of
o Contestable funding will be able to consider proposals to create,
promote and/or distribute quality New Zealand art work via a website.
Creative New Zealand will also consider proposals to engage in artform
development and arts discourse via a website.
o Contestable funding proposals that seek to make use of a website will
need to conform to standard Creative New Zealand funding eligibility
criteria as well as to any specific criteria required by:
- a funding body (Arts Board, Te Waka Toi or the Pacific Arts Committee)
- a funding pathway (Quick Response, Arts Grants, Arts or Sector
- an artform specific criteria (see art form sections of the Funding
Guide for example music, literature, visual arts, dance, theatre or
o Web based arts projects will be assessed using the same assessment
criteria and processes as other contestable funding proposals.
o Web based arts projects will be able to seek a contribution towards
the same types of costs as other contestable funding proposals - — for
example a contribution towards artist fees.
o A maximum of $5,000 will be able to be contributed by Creative New
Zealand contestable funding towards costs directly related to the
placing of work on a website. Costs directly related to the placing of
work on a website refers to the:
§ costs of web page design
§ purchase of any software required as part of the operation of a
§ cost of converting text/sound/visuals into web-appropriate computer
code (for example HTML or XTML).
CNZ will still be unable to contribute towards the costs of purchasing
computer hardware or support the development or distribution of content
intended for radio or television broadcast.
The effect of these changes are that Creative New Zealand contestable
funding will be able to consider contributing to a wider range of web
based arts projects through contestable funding.
