On Friday (25 August) applications for the second round of this year’s Seed Grants opened.
This year guild has split grants into two categories and two rounds (formerly one category across three rounds), to help reduce the competition between new/emerging writers and more seasoned pros.
Across the year, the grants on offer are eight Seed grants of $10,000 and four of $12,500. All grants include $2,500 for script consultation. The first round closed in June, with awardees to be announced.
The Seed scheme is supported by the NZFC. Applications for the NZWG Seed and Seed Advanced grants close on 20 October.
