Creative Victoria checks the application to ensure it is eligible.
The Specialist Advisory Panel evaluates applications against the program's assessment criteria and prioritise organisations for funding.
A moderation meeting involving panel chairs and senior Creative Victoria staff review each panel's priorities and finalise the funding recommendations ensuring they are balanced overall, fit within the program budget and reflect the outcomes sought by the program.
Creative Victoria makes funding recommendations to the Minister for Creative Industries.
