Small publishers to pitch for $50,000 in new Ozco structure Posted Monday 5th September, 2011

The Literature Board of the Australia Council for the Arts has announced a new structure for its publishing subsidies which will provide publishers with greater flexibility and recognise the contribution and track record of Australia’s small and medium sized publishers. Under the new Publishing Program Grants, which commences in 2012, publishers will apply for annual funding towards their literary publishing program rather than applying for funding for individual titles.

Special Publishing Grants will also be available for ‘one-off’ titles or a series of titles as part of a larger, innovative publishing project. A publisher can apply for up to $50,000 for support for editing, manuscript development, production, digital conversion, permission fees or any large costs, associated with the publication of one-off ‘special’ titles.
