Online services
The Arts Council has an online services website. All applications must be submitted through the online services website. You can upload a wide range of support materials in electronic format (up to 20 MB in total) along with your application form.

The window for making an online application opens on 16 June 2015.

Before you will be able to make an online application you will have to register with the site. It may take up to five working days for your registrations to be confirmed so it is very important that you register as early as possible.
