Welcome to the Arts NSW online  application service, powered by SmartyGrants.

You may begin anywhere in this  form. Please ensure you save as you go.

Information on Peer Registration is available on our website

For queries about the questions in the form please contact us on 02 9995 0529 during business hours or email and quote your registration number.


On every screen (page of the form) you will find a Form Navigation contents box, this links directly to every page of the application. Click the link to jump directly to the page you want.

You can also click 'next page' or 'previous page' on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the application.


If you wish to leave a partially completed application, press 'save' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of any forms you have started or submitted. You can reopen your draft form and start where you left off.

You can also download the form, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the 'Download' button at the bottom of the  navigation panel.


You will find a Review and Submit button at the bottom of the Navigation Panel. You need to review your application before you can submit it.

Once you have reviewed your application you can submit it by clicking on 'Submit' at the top of the screen or on the navigation panel. You will not be able to submit your application until all the compulsory questions are completed.

Once you have submitted your form, no further editing or uploading of support materials is possible.

When you submit your form you will receive an automated confirmation email with a copy of your submitted form attached. This will be sent to the email you used to register.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted.


You may need to upload/submit attachments to support your registration. This is very simple, but requires you to have the documents saved on your computer, or on a storage device.

You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.


Most internet browsers (including Firefox v2.0 and above; Safari; and Google Chrome) have spell checking facilities built in – you can switch this function on or off by adjusting your browser settings.
