General Event Sponsorship
The City delivers a range of community events and initiatives in its annual program where sponsorship opportunities exist.
From June to August with more than 200 participants, the Evolve Program of Arts & Skills Workshops has been running since 2015, and has been growing in popularity and scope during that time.
In 2020 the City delivered 17 different workshops catering for all ages, eight of which sold out. Residents and visitors to the City attended the workshops in person or online, and information about the workshops reached many more via the City’s promotional channels.
Emerging Artist Award
Taking place in October every year and with an audience of up to 800 people, the Emerging Artist Award will run for its 19th year in 2021 and is recognised by participants and visitors as one of the best quality Council Art Awards in Perth.
In 2020, more than 110 artists entered the exhibition, 63 works were selected for the exhibition by expert judges, and one third of all exhibited works sold - a great result for the artists. The exhibition was open for eight days in the City’s Community Hall in October, and the call for entries and the exhibition were widely promoted by the City from August-October.
Culture and Arts Initiatives and Activations
The City has delivered a wide range of temporary and ephemeral public art projects, mural projects and other arts and activation focused projects on the South Perth Foreshore and around the City, all of which are widely promoted.
There are multiple opportunities* to support these events:
Naming/Association Rights - sponsors willing to contribute 20% or more of the cost of these events and initiatives in cash or in kind, may earn association rights to these events alongside other major event sponsors such as Lotterywest, Healthway and Act Belong Commit.
In addition, sponsors will receive a range of entitlements specially tailored to suit your business and maximum exposure to audiences at these major events and in pre and post event promotion.
Gold Sponsorship – sponsors willing to contribute $5,001 or more in cash or in-kind support, will achieve maximum exposure to audiences at these events, and in pre and post event promotion and a range of entitlements especially tailored to suit your business.
Silver Sponsorship - sponsors willing to contribute $2,001-$5,000 in cash or in-kind support, will achieve maximum exposure to audiences at these events and in pre and post event promotion.
Bronze Sponsorship – sponsors willing to contribute $500-$2,000 in cash or in-kind support, will receive acknowledgement and exposure to audiences at these events and in pre and post event promotion.
Prize Sponsorship – there are always opportunities for sponsorship to be provided in the form of cash, vouchers and/or special offers that may be offered as competition prizes for participants in a City project or initiative. Prize sponsors are acknowledged and promoted at the event/initiative with which they are associated.
Please register your interest in finding out more about sponsoring any of these events or initiatives via the application form and one of our officers will contact you. To make the most of the promotional opportunities on offer through sponsorship, please let us know about your interest in working with us at least six weeks prior to the event or initiative.
*Note: Where the City has already secured significant sponsorship, other new sponsorship arrangements will be negotiated accordingly and must not be in conflict with the conditions of that existing sponsorship.
