Languages other than English
We accept applications in languages other than English, including Auslan.
If any part of your application requires translation into English, please contact the Artists Services Team at least four weeks before the closing date of the round to which you intend to apply. We will use our best and all reasonable endeavours to assist in having some or all of your application translated. However, we reserve the right to refuse an application in a language other than English if we believe there is no genuine reason to accept such an application, or if the time-frame for translation precludes us from making the materials available for assessment in the round to which it was submitted.
If you wish to request an application form in a language other than English, please contact the Artists Services Team at least 12 weeks before the closing date of the round to which you intend to apply. We reserve the right to refuse an application form translation request if we believe there is no genuine reason for the request. We also reserve the right to refuse an application form translation if the time-frame for translation prevents us from providing a translated form in time for assessment in the round to which it was submitted.
