Judging Criteria & FAQs
ANZ Cricket Grants recipients are selected by a panel of judges who take the following into consideration when selecting successful recipients:
- Information provided: Your application must clearly outline what difference an ANZ Cricket Grant will make, help the club, school, team or individual you are applying for, get back into the game and explain why you are a worthy recipient. Highlighting exactly the difference this grant will help make to your club, school, team or individual will help judges assess the merit of your application.
- Impact: The judges are looking for applications where the delivery will have a lasting impact or legacy within a community, and show the difference this support could have in helping your club, school, team or individual.
- Supporting material: Including links to videos in your written application is advised in support of your entry. Making the effort to tell your story and explain why you need ANZ’s help, demonstrates your enthusiasm and commitment to making it happen.
