16 August 2012: The Arts Council announces deeadline for Project Awards

The Arts Council's Project awards support specific project activities under each of the artform/arts practice areas shown below. The award guidelines for each award can be downloaded from the available funding section of the Arts Council's website.

The deadline for all the above awards is 5.30pm on Thursday 6 September 2012.  Applications will only be accepted through the Arts Council's online services website and all supporting material must be submitted online. Applicants who have not previously used the online services site must register in advance of making an application.  It may take up to five working days for your registrations to be confirmed so it is very important that you register as early as possible.

We now provide updates and assistance on the use of online services through our new Facebook page. Feel free to post or send us a message via the page if you need online services support when making a Project Award application: http://www.facebook.com/artscouncilireland

The awards are open to individuals and organisations. However, organisations in receipt of funding under any of the main Arts Council grant programmes (Regularly Funded Organisations, Annual Funding, Annual Programming Grant) will not be eligible to apply. Organisations that have been informed in writing that their recurring grant relationship with the Arts Council will cease on or before 31 March 2013 are eligible to apply.
