Prepare Your Registration

Once you have planned your events, it's time to prepare everything you need to register and apply for seed-funding.

Use the headings in the registration template and the relevant calendar blurb templates to collate all the information needed to complete the online registration form. Make sure you save a copy of your registration for later reference - you will not be able to save the information you submit online or access it after you hit 'submit'. If you are registering multiple events, please provide full information for each activity in one registration form. Applications for seed-funding can be made as part of your registration.
