All applications will be reviewed by the Grants program judges.

The judges will assess the merits of each application at their discretion based on fulfilment of eligibility criteria set out in the terms and conditions against their nominated grant category. All grants awarded will be at the discretion of the panel of appointed judges.

There is a limit of one application per person.

Different people from the same organisation or team can enter. However, if successful, an organisation or team will only be awarded a one grant for the 2020 program. Applicants who apply for a grant must have the permission of the club or organisation to apply.

The ANZ & Sydney Mardi Gras Community Grants judges would love to see your application. Submitting a video, images or supporting documents with your application is optional but strongly encouraged.

Your video does not have to be high quality – you can even film and submit from your smartphone.

To submit a video, you will need to upload it to YouTube or any other hosting website and paste the link in the application form. There is no time restriction on the video. It should be a ‘public’ or ‘unlisted’ video, not ‘private’, to ensure the judges can see your entry.

Only successful applicants will be notified via phone and email. 

Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years.

The grants program will be opening on Tuesday 1 September 2020 at 9am and will close on Sunday 4 October 2020 at 11.59pm.
