Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I register as a new client?
2. How do I add a new organisation?
3. How do I associate myself with an existing organisation?

How do I login as an existing client?
Please email ASAGrants@sa.gov.au with your full name and residential or postal address requesting a login. We will activate your profile and set you up with a temporary password within 24 business hours of your request.
Please note - if you are logging in for the first time you cannot use the reset password button as your login must be activated as above.

Can I nominate myself?
Yes! At the top of your nomination form you will be asked whether you are nominating yourself or someone else. Be sure to check the box marked ‘Yourself’ and the GMS will automatically copy the contact details associated with your account.

Can I nominate on behalf of an organisation other than my own?
Yes! At the top of your nomination form you will be asked whether you are nominating yourself or someone else. If nominating someone else, you will be asked to fill in the nominee’s contact details (if nominating an organisation, these should be the details of a nominated representative of the organisation).

Is there a set of questions or criteria I need to answer in my application?
Yes. Individual questions pertaining to each award can be found on the second page of the nomination form in the portal. You can also save your progress and return to your nomination as many times as you like before the closing date (5pm, Monday 10 September).

Is there a word limit?
We’d recommend somewhere between 500-1,200 words. There is no limit, but keep in mind our judges have a lot of nominations to read through – so the more concise, the better!

Do I need to complete and submit my nomination all in one go?
No. You can save your progress and return to your nomination as many times as you like before the closing date (5pm, Monday 10 September).

What kind of support materials should I submit?
Support materials are there to ensure the judges have a complete understanding of the nominee, even if they’ve never seen it/heard of it/them before, and why it/they should win the award. They are not compulsory but are recommended to ensure the panel has a full understanding of the nominee. Support materials may include:

  • High quality production images and headshots (RECOMMENDED)
  • Video footage (trailers, interviews, production footage, etc.)
  • Promotional and marketing materials (programs, flyers, postcards, etc.)
  • Media clippings (reviews, interviews, articles, etc.)
  • Audience and community feedback
  • Testimonials and letters of support
  • Anything else you can think of!

What kind of URLs should I submit?
Any other supporting materials that cannot be uploaded should be added as a URL link at the end of your application. Supporting URLs may include:

  • Websites
  • Social media profiles
  • Videos
  • Online articles, interviews, reviews
  • Anything else you can think of!

Can I still submit a hard-copy application?
Yes, please email our Marketing & Communications Coordinator to obtain the form.

Who should I contact with technical issues?
Please call Arts South Australia on (08) 8263 5444 or email ASAGrants@sa.gov.au
Please note – technical support will be unavailable from 4pm on the closing date of nominations.
