Copyright Licensing New Zealand (CLNZ) is pleased to announce our new CLNZ Partnership Fund which is aimed at partnering with sector groups that are connecting to, or working with, diverse and emerging voices and communities.

A small portion of revenue allocated to the Cultural Fund for 2022 has been made available for this fund.  We’re taking this approach to help provide opportunities for a new generation of writers, publishers and illustrators.

We invite expressions of interest to our CLNZ Partnership Fund to support projects with grants that range in value from $2,000 to $5,000 for opportunities that:

  • have clearly defined and measurable project outcomes
  • are being managed by recognised publishing industry organisations or individuals
  • have other funding or in-kind resources in place that, at a minimum, equals the funding sought from the Partnership Fund
  • meet the objectives of the Cultural Fund

Applications that reach and engage communities of diverse writers and/or illustrators, including the next generation of writers and/or illustrators are encouraged to apply and will be prioritised. Take a look at the guidelines and criteria here.

In March, the first project supported through our Partnership Fund was announced. This is a writer’s residency run through the Michael King Writers Centre, which enables an Aotearoa New Zealand writer to travel to, and stay at, Varuna, the National Writers House in Katoomba, New South Wales. Our Partnership Fund support for the residency is alongside support from Copyright Agency Australia through their Cultural Fund, and the Australia Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Find out more about the Varuna residency.
