Making an application

Applications will only be accepted via the Arts Councils online services website: You will be able to upload a wide range of support materials in electronic format along with your application form.

If you have previously applied for funding via online services you can make an application through your existing account. Otherwise you must register with the site. It may take up to five working days for your registration to be confirmed so it is very important that you register as early as possible.

The window for making an online application will open on Tuesday, 10 September 2013.
