Supporting the creative sector
The Cultural Fund derives its revenue from a 2% share of domestic licensing income and from overseas revenue that is non-title specific. This fund then supports projects that are in the interest of authors and publishers we represent.
The Cultural Fund invests in people and projects that meet its objectives to:
- Protect - writers and publishers’ ability to earn revenue from their works;
- Support – the creation and production of new works and assist the commercial success of New Zealand works;
- Grow – the number of works created and skills in the industry.
