How am I required to acknowledge ArtsNL funding support?

You are receiving public /private funds in the form of a grant from ArtsNL for specific professional creative and artistic purposes as outlined in your application. As a condition of the Grant Acceptance Contract, you must acknowledge ArtsNL’s support in all promotional material associated with the project outlined in your grant application. This recognition must be equal to that given to corporate funders, or other sponsors/donors, for similar support.

ArtsNL must be acknowledged as a ‘funder’ (as opposed to being included in a collection of corporate sponsors/donors). This is important as ArtsNL grants are exclusively financial, and our processes include peer assessment to ensure the highest artistic goals are met within projects funded.

The official brand for ArtsNL must be used, adhering to the new brand standards guide (available in the Resources section of the website). The ArtsNL brand consists of both the graphic portion and the text (i.e. “Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council”) and may not be manipulated in any way.

Grant recipients must also include the following acknowledgment message in their print and promotional materials (brochures, programs, websites, books, CDs, etc.) or when verbally thanking funders at public events or performances.

We acknowledge the support of ArtsNL, which last year invested $2.35 million to foster and promote the creation and enjoyment of the arts for the benefit of all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.

NOTE: Failure to acknowledge the support of ArtsNL can result in a request to return funds awarded, and/or affect your eligibility for future funding.
