Through Creative Victoria, the Victorian Government supports a wide range of creative projects, organisations and initiatives.

    All recipients of Creative Victoria funding must publicly acknowledge the support of the Victorian Government.

    There are Minimum requirements for all projects, with Additional requirements for some. Check both sections below to make sure you understand the complete acknowledgement responsibilities for your funding.

    Remember also to check your funding agreement for any project-specific requirements. If you have any further questions, please speak with your Creative Victoria Program Officer listed on the program page.

    1. Text acknowledgement

      All recipients for funding must use specific wording (‘text acknowledgement’) below in any public speeches, interviews and text-only promotion of the project.

      A text or verbal acknowledgement of the Victorian Government's support should be used in media releases, launch/event speeches and other promotional opportunities where a logo may not be possible.

      In general, the following wording should be used:

      "[This project/organisation] is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria."

    2. Social media acknowledgements

      When using social media to promote supported activities, please use the following hashtags and account handles.

    Additional requirements

    In addition to the minimum requirements, there are acknowledgement responsibilities for recipients in receipt of funding for projects that fall within the following categories:

    Victorian State Government logo

    Vic gov logo

    In some instances, where your project or activity has been supported by multiple Victorian Government departments, you should use the Victorian State Government logo rather than those of Creative Victoria and the other individual departments. If you are unsure, please contact Creative Victoria's Communications Manager for advice.

    Education partnerships

    Recipients of funding through Education Partnerships are required to use the Victorian Government logo instead of the Creative Victoria logo.

    If you have received funding through the Creative Learning Partnerships program (a partnership between Creative Victoria and the Department of Education and Training), please use the Victorian Government logo accompanied by the words Creative Learning Partnerships – a State Government Initiative.
