Funding acknowledgement requirements

  • invitations or registration brochures and conference programs

  • TV, radio and newspaper advertisements
  • printed documents associated with the project
  • annual reports
  • newsletters
  • social media
  • multimedia material including websites, videos, CDs and other promotional items.

Project signage templates

Funding recipients must also acknowledge funding contributions through signage at the project site. Recipients are to ensure signage is prepared, approved and installed in accordance with section 3.4 of the Funding Acknowledgement Guidelines (PDF, 3.5MB).
