All Arts NSW PDF forms need to be completed using Adobe Reader (version 9.1 or above). You can download the latest version for free here.

Please note: due to a compatibility issue with Adobe these forms can currently only be downloaded using Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. Forms cannot be downloaded using other browsers, including Chrome and Safari.  Alternatively contact Arts NSW staff to request a copy.

Digital Signatures

All Arts NSW PDF forms can be signed using digital signatures. A digital signature can be created through Adobe Reader by clicking in any signature field and following the step-by-step ‘wizard’ which will guide you through the process. Digital signatures are password protected and verify when the document was signed and if any changes have been made to the document since it has been signed. You only need to create your digital signature once and then it will be available each time you want to sign a PDF on your computer.

Information for Mac users: Mac users need to use Adobe Reader for Mac and not the Mac PDF preview program to fill out Arts NSW forms.

To make Adobe Reader your default program for opening PDF documents:

1. Close any open programs or files.
2. Navigate to your Mac’s Finder then click on any PDF file to select the file type. Click File and Get Info.
3. Click the down arrow next to Open With. Scroll down the list of programs and select Adobe Reader.
4. Click the Change All button to set Adobe Reader as the default application for opening PDF files. Then click the red button in the left corner of the Get Info box to accept the change.

Once you’ve done this, re-open the form and check there is a purple message at the top saying ‘You CAN save typed data into this form’.

How to submit your form

The preferred submission method is email. Please return your completed form to the email address shown on the form. You will receive an email acknowledging that your form has been received. If you are unable to return your form by email, please contact Arts NSW staff.
