Supporting NZ and the creative industry

Good New Zealand books and their authors are close to our heart and we’re out to declare our unreserved love.

The message is simple - a love and appreciation of books goes hand in hand with a love and appreciation of the creators and authors who wrote them. We are sure that teachers, students, and other reading New Zealanders, will agree.

Creative Rights = Creative Reads

Creative Rights + Creative Reads

We’ve teamed up with the New Zealand Society of Authors and the Publishers Association of New Zealand to put the importance of local books, and the critical role rights play in fueling their creation, in the spotlight. The result is our Creative Rights = Creative Reads campaign. Take a look at the campaign site here >> www.creativerights.nz

The campaign highlights that when we value the rights of creators in their work, we all get more: more creativity, more local stories, more inspirational ideas, and access to more local knowledge. It also tells real life stories giving perspectives from people who read, create and love Aotearoa New Zealand books.

Creative rights are critical to our book sector. When we value the rights of the people who write and make our books, we all benefit. Connect with Creative Rights = Creative Reads on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

We are proud to take a lead role in connecting the dots between encouraging knowledge and creativity with the respect for authors. We whole-heartedly agree with our European colleagues that “a world that values knowledge and culture must value its creators”.

The Cultural Fund is one way we are able to invest in the creative industry. Find out more about it here.

Informing Government and Industry

We operate with the objectives to protect writers and publishers’ ability to earn revenue from their works, support the creation of new works and their commercial success, and grow the number of works created and skills in the industry.

A vital part of successfully achieving these objectives is in our work informing and influencing future government policy, upholding the importance of creativity and the absolute right of authors and publishers to earn a living from their work.

Stakeholders can now easily access submissions to government and research reports through the links below.
