CAIP provides the following:

Step 1: Online submission process

We strongly encourage artists and/or arts organizations to meet with our Development Officer for consultation before the submission deadline. Consultation meetings will be available up to six business days before the submission deadline and must be booked in advance.

Submissions must be received in whole by the submission deadline. Please ensure you are familiar with the requirements and technical aspects of the online submission form well in advance of the deadline.

Online submission process is closed.

Step 2: Jury process

Submissions are reviewed by independent, volunteer juries that advise on priority funding areas, assess submissions, and make recommendations on the awarding of investments.


Each year's CAIP juries are composed of approximately fifteen arts professionals, community members, and arts patrons from across London. We invite Expressions of Interest in becoming a CAIP juror from all qualified parties; however, you cannot serve as a juror in a year when you have submitted an investment request.

Step 3: Recognition, requirements and reporting process

If you receive an investment, you will be required to:

  1. acknowledge the London Arts Council and the City of London's support by including print/digital logos and verbal credit lines as described in our investment agreement and on our Logos & Acknowledgments page;

  2. any other requirements as outlined in our investment agreement;

  3. submit a final report, including a reconciled project budget.
