Reapplying for a previously declined project

Resubmissions of declined projects from past funding opportunities may be considered in limited circumstances at the discretion of Creative New Zealand. Contact Funding Services to request consideration. Permission will be granted by the Manager, Funding Services.

Generally, for a resubmission to be accepted the following criteria must be met:

  • The application was not submitted to any funding opportunity prior to 1 July 2020
  • The application was scored highly by assessors and was recommended by the assessment panel but could not be funded in the round due to limited budget
  • The request to reapply is made within six weeks of the notification date
  • The project is able to be completed within a new funding timeframe.

If approval is given for your application to be resubmitted, this will count as one of your two Arts Grants applications for 2020/21. Therefore, if you were successful in your first application, and are seeking to resubmit your second application which was not successful, this is not possible.

All requests for resubmissions should be sent to Funding Services and you may be given permission to resubmit your application to a future Arts Grants round. Any resubmissions submitted without approval will be made automatically ineligible.

Any approval for resubmission does not guarantee a successful application for funding.

If you have been unsuccessful in an application to Annual Arts Grants, you can apply to Arts Grants for projects that were included in your application, without seeking approval. This does not include applications made ineligible.

Applications which have been made ineligible are not able to be resubmitted, and count as one of your two Arts Grants applications for 2020/21.
