The Project

Prepare a grant submission to position MudgeeQue as a flagship tourism event in the Mudgee Region, aiming to boost ticket sales by 30%, and secure funds for the development of an event marketing plan and implementation of promotional activities for the 2022 event.

The Client: MudgeeQue

Held annually on the first Saturday of winter, MudgeeQue is a one-day outdoor BBQ + Smokin’ Meats Festival celebrating local produce, musicians, craft brewers, distillers, and winemakers in the beautiful Mudgee Region. The fiery affair offers festivalgoers time to indulge in incredible food and drink while reconnecting with family and friends.

The Challenge

Efficiently prepare before deadline and adhere to the criteria set by the Destination NSW Regional Event Fund Program. Create a persuasive submission to secure a vital $25,000 grant, which will act as the lifeblood for promotion of the event in 2022.

The Solution

We leveraged our expertise in grant writing to craft a comprehensive submission aligned with program objectives:

  • Analyse Grant Criteria: Evaluate timelines, program goals, and eligibility requirements.
  • Determine Eligibility: Assess the client’s project eligibility for relevant funding streams.
  • Craft Submission: Fulfill all criteria and meet every requirement.
  • Offer Recommendations: Furnish ongoing guidance to the client during the submission process.
  • Review & Refine: Guarantee clarity, relevance, and alignment with program objectives.
