Annual and Final Reports

Please Note: ACIAR has a new Annual Report submission date

Commencing in 2016, annual reports will be due by 15 July (previously 31 May). This change has been made to allow all projects to report on all activities in the previous financial year.

Project fact sheets and images

ACIAR often receives requests for more information about our research projects and partnerships, in particular stories of impacts and lives changed. As part of the annual report commencing in 2016, ACIAR will be asking all projects to submit a two page (front and back) fact sheet describing progress, including recently completed activities, plans for the next year and stories of practice change and livelihood impact. We will also be asking you to provide at least five high resolution images and accompanying metadata which we can use to promote your work. These fact sheets and images will be part of the public face of your project, helping us to showcase the great work of the research partnership.

Final Reports cover the entire project period, and should be a stand-alone document covering the project’s total outputs and outcomes. As with Annual Reports, the Executive Summary section is published on this website. The Final Report is also published in full on the ACIAR website.

Using photographs in reports

If you wish to use photographs in your report, please

  • use low-resolution images only - information on reducing the image resolution can be found searching on the internet, or in your camera or image handling software. You can also read more at…
  • make sure your photographs are relevant to the report, not just decorative
  • caption your photos with subject, names of people in the picture, photographer’s name and date taken.
