Commercial Creative Events Sponsorships are our way of showing support for major cultural events organised by third parties. The value of the sponsorship is determined following an assessment of the economic and other benefits estimated to arise from the event.

Under this program, the City’s contribution may include cash, the valuation of the brand association with the City of Sydney, and reducing or waiving nominated Council fees for services.

General policy eligibility and exclusions apply.

How to apply

All applications are assessed against the general and specific criteria for this program, which are set out in the City’s grants and sponsorships policy.

Applicants should speak with an economic strategy officer before applying in writing to the chief executive officer. Contact the City’s Grants Team on 02 9265 9333 or to make an appointment.


Requests for sponsorship are considered on an ad hoc basis.
