Funding limit:
● Projects must have an appropriate level of co-funding. This is a key criterion in the assessment of the level of support a project enjoys at national level. The higher the amount applied for, the more self-financing and funding from other sources the Fund expects. In practice, this means that only 50% of the total funding for a project may be from the Culture Fund and maximum 85% from the various Nordic funding bodies.
● You can apply for max. DKK 500,000 but please look at previous awards to gauge what constitutes a typical amount before applying.
● Voluntary work may form part of the self-funding component of the project. The application budget must quantify the scale of any voluntary work.
● Grants may be used for administrative and wage costs, as long as these are directly linked to the project.

Special Notes: Please contact with the donor directly for further clarification and understanding.

They provide wide-ranging support, but there are certain limitations. The Fund does not finance:
● Projects outside of the arts and culture, e.g. sporting events the production and distribution of products, if that is the sole or primary purpose of the project, e.g. music, film and television, computer games, book publishing and translations tours, if they are not part of a wider-ranging Nordic co-operation
● Internships and school trips

● Active and competent international partners ought to contribute resources to the project, either financially or in kind. They also assess the Nordic relevance and level of interaction involved in the project. In addition, we assess the projects’ quality, planned follow-up activities, impact and level of general external interest.
● Grants are usually awarded for the event’s additional Nordic costs, e.g. travel expenses, fees and administration for workshops, performances, concerts, exhibitions, festivals, conferences, research projects, etc.
