Dear Mr Elmer,
I am writing concerning your application for assistance under the Music Board’s Soundclash initiative.
I regret to advise that the Soundclash panel was unable to support your application on this occasion.
The Australia Council continues to receive many more applications than it is able to fund. As a result, the Music Board has the difficult task of deciding between many worthwhile proposals in order to allocate very limited funds.
A report giving details of the assessment process and other information about this round of applications, as a context for your own application, is available from our website at www.australiacouncil.gov.au/grants/amr. This report will be available after Wednesday 24 June 2009.
If you cannot access our website, or there is anything you would like to discuss in relation to the assessment of your application, I invite you to contact Peter Keogh whose details appear at the top of this letter.
Please note that supporting material submitted with your application will not be returned and will be disposed of 45 days after the date of this letter.
Thank you for your application. Please accept my good wishes for your future success.
Australia Council For The Arts
looks like you'll have to get a real job, blake.
