Sharing the news

You’ve heard word from us that your grant application has been a success?

We’d love you to share the good news and hear about how your organisation is making a difference to the Western Australian community.

Getting the word out that you have received a Lotterywest grant lets people know that the money spent on Lotterywest games supports WA community organisations. It’s also a great opportunity to raise your profile.

Here’s how we can work together to spread the word.

Share with us

We know that there are many Lotterywest supported organisations out there that are helping to build a better WA. We hear inspirational stories about a range of Lotterywest supported projects - and we want to hear from you too.

Call us or give us a shout out on social media with your updates and photos so we can share your news. Tag @Lotterywest on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and use our popular hashtag #Lotterywest.

Share with the media

See our sample media release or use the following handy tips to get your story out there:

  • Let us know that you would like to send a media release. We can help with key messages
  • Include your organisation’s name and contact details
  • Give brief, compelling information and include direct personal quotes from your spokesperson
  • Send a clear and informative photo (at least 300 dpi high quality resolution) and suggest interesting photo/filming options

Share with your community

To share updates about your Lotterywest supported project, we suggest keeping an eye out for interesting photo opportunities relating to your grant. Here are some tips on how to capture the impact of your project.

We have produced short video clips to help show that by playing Lotterywest games, people are helping to support the WA community. These can be provided to you to share, just contact us.

You can also spread the word in your newsletters and other communication. Here are some key points to get you started:

  • Lotterywest is unique. It is the only lottery in Australia, and one of the few in the world, where the profits are returned back to the local community.
  • Lotterywest’s support for the community is possible only because of the small businesses and players that support the purchase of Lotterywest games. 
  • When you play Lotterywest games the money stays in WA via grants, prizes and employment opportunities for locals.

Order Lotterywest supported signage

By displaying Lotterywest branded signs and stickers you’re letting people know that every time you play a Lotterywest game, you’re supporting great community activities and organisations.

Check out our promotional material order form to order online at no cost. Here’s what’s on offer:

  • Temporary signage for events, conferences, certificate presentations and official openings - once social distancing regulations are lifted.
  • Permanent signage including plaques and window decals for buildings, vehicle decals and stickers for equipment.

To make sure your order arrives on time, please allow five working days for metro orders and 10 working days for country orders. We’re happy to assist with urgent orders too, just give us a call. Temporary signage is delivered with instructions on how to return it directly to our sign management company.

Please note: we are experiencing minor issues with the signage order form. You may receive an error message but we will still receive your order and will get in touch with you to confirm the details.

Use the Lotterywest logo

The Lotterywest logo is an important way to let others know that by playing Lotterywest games, they get to help their dreams and those of WA come to life.

This logo can be used on your websites, publications and presentations to show Lotterywest's support for your organisation or project. Click on the Lotterywest brand guide for guidelines on how to download and use our logo.
