Creative Victoria uses advisory panels to assist it in the grant evaluation process.
The role of each panel is to assess grant applications and to make recommendations to the Minister for Creative Industries regarding which applications should receive support.
Each panel is made up of representatives from across the arts and creative industries and other relevant areas that reflect the Victorian community. The diversity of the panel adds depth and value to the quality of advice presented to the Minister. Consideration is given to the balance of different creative expertise, cultural backgrounds, experience and an understanding of both regional and urban contexts.
Creative Victoria staff recruits each panel from our Advisory Panel Register — a pool of more than 500 people with experience in the creative industries and other relevant sectors, who have expressed their interest in being a member of an Assessment Panel.

How to register for an advisory panel
If I’m selected how soon will I get to sit on an advisory panel?
How long will my details remain on the panel register?
The Minister for Creative Industries approves members to be part of the register for a three-year period.
I’ve previously served on a Creative Victoria advisory panel. Will this improve my chances?
If you’ve already been selected to serve on one of Creative Victoria’s panels, it’s likely that you’ve got the skills and experience we’re looking for, so we’d love to have you back. However, we’re always looking for new people to inject a fresh perspective or area of expertise into the mix, so you certainly won’t be disadvantaged if you’ve not served previously.
