Register on behalf of a group or organisation

Important information:

  • Before you can register a group or organisation you need to register as an individual.

  • If your group or organisation has applied previously you can ask Creative New Zealand to complete the registration process and give you access to the group or organisation's profile in the Portal.

  • Inviting someone to join your organisation in the Portal will not automatically allow them to view all applications from that group/organisation. See Invite others to join your application.
