Some terms and conditions
While this isn’t for anyone’s first show, it is also not intended to support commercially established shows. As a rule, this is for artists in venues of less than 120 seats (this is a guide, we won’t be counting chairs). We know there will be reasons from time to time that people will be in bigger rooms (eg: shorter runs, production needs) and you can talk to us about this.
Producers and managers must pass the whole benefit of the grant through to the artist by way of reduced costs for the show which cannot be shared with other shows. The artist must receive no less than 60% of the profits and the producer cannot charge fees other than the profit share.
This has to be a premiere for the festival seasons. You can be performing a preview season in the Perth or Adelaide Fringe Festivals, but this is a fund to make something new – it isn’t for polishing gold.
You need to be an Australian permanent resident.
The selection committee is not required to give feedback on applications.
The committee will need to sign off on the director/collaborator, who can’t also be one of the people in the show. If you have your heart set on someone, let us know now – otherwise, we will talk about it once we have selected the recipients.
