Australian publishers may apply for the Cultural Fund’s grants for organisations if they meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Refer to Who Can Apply for Grants for Organisations.
- The Cultural Fund offers support for a small number of publishers’ commissions for work by First Nations and diverse writers. The publisher agrees to match the Cultural Fund’s contribution and all money must be paid to the authors. This does not replace royalties or an advance on royalties.
- Publishers must be Australian-based and books must be distributed nationally. Standard royalties must be paid to authors.
- Authors who self-publish their work are not eligible to apply.
