Strategic Opportunities Program

The Strategic Opportunities Program supports individual initiatives and events that demonstrate long-term benefits to the NSW screen industry.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis at any time during the year, subject to available funds. 

The objectives of the Program are:

  • to build capacity within the industry and organisations and businesses within the sector;
  • to support new and sustainable partnerships in particular between organisations of State significance and practitioners;
  • to support audience access strategies for projects and practitioners.

 Applications will be assessed against the following criteria:

  • the project/event is well planned and of high artistic quality and it has capacity to contribute to the overall stability and strength of the NSW screen industry;
    • the plans for the use of the funding and the amount of other funding;
    • track record of the applicant and partners;
    • the availability of funds.

Events and programs that support high-quality activity, engagement and participation with these Priority Areas are of particular importance:

  • people living and/or working in regional NSW
  • people living and/or working in Western Sydney
  • Aboriginal people
  • people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) backgrounds
  • people with disability
  • young people.

Further information on addressing Priority Areas can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section on the Create NSW website – www.create.nsw.gov.au

Please note that Create NSW will not support conferences, panel discussions or similar events which have all male panel members.
