Welcome to the Creative New Zealand Portal User Guide

The Creative New Zealand Portal is a secure website that lets you:

  • manage your contact details
  • view open funding opportunities
  • prepare and submit applications and reports.

Peer assessors can also read and assess applications assigned to them in the Portal.

This guide tells you how to use the Portal. If you need any further information send us an email or phone 0800 273 284 ( +64 4 473 0880 from outside New Zealand) for technical help.

Tips for submitting your application:

  • Submit your application as soon as possible to avoid congestion on the closing date that can make the Portal slow down.
  • Start your project budget early. Budgets take time to prepare and shouldn't be rushed. 
  • Ask for letters of support to be provided well in advance. You cannot add support material to your application after the funding round has closed.
