Tech Tips


Remember to save each page before advancing to the next.

Compose Offline.
Write your narrative and then copy and paste into the e-Application. That protects your text in case of a computer malfunction.

Is there a file size limit?
Yes. The system will not accept files larger than 2 MB.

My file won't upload.
If your file is less than 2 MB and still won't upload, make sure that your file is a PDF, a docx or an xlsx file. 

If I have a website that shows work samples (images, audio files, video clips, etc.) can I link to my site?
No. Do not use the Work Samples section of the CGO e-Application site. There is a question within the e-Application that asks for your website links.

What happens if I have trouble uploading my application on the last day that it's due?
This cannot be stressed enough -- apply early. That will avoid last minute problems. However, if you do run into difficulties, your application can be monitored from an administrative "back-end." Any applicant who has completed the process by the deadline, but has trouble with the submission, will need to document the problem in advance of the deadline. To document, contact the Arts and Cultural Alliance tech support person (listed under Alliance Tech Support button) to state your problem.
