Evaluation criteria

The following criteria is used to assess applications:

  • An application must be sent before the launch of a project or start of a tour. Certain projects may have begun work before the deadline, as long as the application is submitted before the project is launched.

  • Development opportunities either for the applicant and/or Danish music sector.

  • Artistic quality.

  • A touring company will be prioritised over a single concert.

  • Innovative elements in projects or formats.

  • Strategic value for the applicant’s career.

  • Demonstrable local demand for the project.

  • Emphasis is placed on a sensible budget with a realistic balance between expenses and earnings. Fees in connection with touring activities internationally are not expected to be lower than local musician fees for similar concerts.

  • A plan to generate maximum value from the allocated funding: for example, arranging workshops or meetings with relevant collaboration partners with international projects, or when international soloists visit Denmark.

Report travel expenses

Link to the reporting form:

  • Reporting can only be submitted via the reporting form – we will not accept expense reportings via email or the messaging function in the application system (GrantOne). 

  • All attachments must be attached as a single PDF file

  • The first page of the PDF file should feature an overview of all travel expenses in Danish kroner, including a total amount in Danish kroner. If this page is not included, you risk that we will ask you to resend the report. 

  • The reporting form is found on Google Sheets – meaning you need a Google account to be able to complete it. We are aware that this is not an optimal solution and are working on a new model, which we are striving to launch in 2022. 

  • Reports are processed every Thursday.

07
Commitment and payment
  • If your project is granted support, you will receive a letter of commitment.

  • The support is paid out after the completion of the project and once you have submitted an expense report and copy of all travel expenses to Art Music Denmark at the latest one month after the project’s completion.

  • The granted support amount will be adjusted relative to the ultimate and actual travel expenses covered by the grant. For example:
    • If your actual expenses were ultimately lower than the amount of support you were granted, you will only be paid for what you spent.
    • If your expenses exceed the granted amount, your support payment will not exceed the granted amount.
    • If local travel within Denmark, hotel stays, or other expenses that are not covered by the support are integrated into the total costs, those expenses will be deducted
      It is a condition of the grant that it is only paid via the NemKonto system.

  • Payments are processed every Thursday.

Crediting Art Music Denmark
Art Music Denmark is to be credited when a project that has received subsidy support from us is published and presented to the press, public and other stakeholders.
Read more about giving credit here.

08
Declined applications
  • If your project is not granted support, you will receive a letter confirming your declined application.
  • We receive so many submissions with every application round, that the total funds applied for exceeds the funding pool earmarked by the Danish Arts Foundation for the support. We are therefore unable to approve every application.

  • Multiple applications:
    You are not able to apply for support from multiple music genre organisations (e.g. Art Music Denmark and Tempi) for the same project. Such applications will be rejected on the basis of duplicate applications.

  • Incorrectly submitted application:
    If your application is declined on the basis that it was incorrectly submitted to Art Music Denmark instead of another music genre organisation, Art Music Denmark will enter into a dialogue with the applicant and recommend sending the original application onwards to processing by the correct music genre organisation or the Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Music Project Funding.

The other Danish music genre organisations

  • JazzDanmark: Jazz and related genres
  • ROSA: pop, rock, electronica and related genres
  • Tempi: roots, folk and world music
09
Significant changes to a project
  • In effect, you will need to carry out and complete the project you described in your application. If there are significant changes to the project, it must be approved in advance.

  • Significant changes could include major changes to your submitted budget, changing key participants, delaying the start or finish date of a project (i.e. due to COVID) or if personal reasons preclude you from completing the project as planned.

  • If you experience changes in your project, please contact the Travel Support Manager, Thinh Duc Tran: transport@artmusicdenmark.org.
    Remember to enter your journal number in the subject line when contacting us.
