Copyright Agency’s Fellowship Grants are about honouring the significant contribution authors and publishers made in the establishment of the Copyright Agency.

The Copyright Agency was established in 1974 when authors and publishers combined to stand up for creators. The Copyright Agency Fellowships recognise the value that these groups have brought to the creative community.

The Fellowships will be awarded to individuals who exhibit leadership, excellence and innovation in their field.

There are two streams:


One $80,000 Fellowship will be awarded to a mid to late career author to cover a 12 month period to develop and create a work.
