Regional Events Sponsorship

The City of Albany’s vision is to be Western Australia’s most sought after and unique Regional City to live, work and visit. We recognise the important role events play in celebrating the community’s diversity and talents, increasing cultural understanding, driving visitation, generating economic benefits and activating our beautiful parks, beaches and public spaces.

The City of Albany’s Regional Events & Film Sponsorship program supports the staging of regional major events that can contribute to the delivery of economic benefits for the region. The program offers cash sponsorship. To be considered a regional major event, organisers must demonstrate in their application that the event has the capability to draw a significant number of visitors from the outside of the region.


The City of Albany has expanded the Regional Events Sponsorship program to introduce a new funding stream that aims to bolster the development of the film and television industry within the region. The City recognises the immense potential for economic growth and cultural enrichment that these projects bring to the Great Southern. To qualify for this funding, applicants must demonstrate the project’s capacity to promote Albany and the Great Southern and make a positive impact on both the local economy and the community’s exposure to diverse artistic experiences.

Please note: “film production” and “film sponsorship” refers to both film and television production.
