I read an article a while ago about a woman who tried to write a minimum of 100 applications a year. Not only did she inevitably have some success, but she kept a data log of each application: to track feedback, the development of her ideas, and to remind herself that, ultimately, a lack of success is not necessarily because her idea or even her application is substandard. Success is contingent, and even if one of her applications failed with one granting body, it may well be successful with another (possibly without altering a single word).
As part of VIMH’s commitment to sharing resources, this is a centralised database of a curated collection of Melbourne-based arts applications (including prizes, funding, workshops, etc).

It is by no means comprehensive and is built upon weekly.
