  • Expense reports can only be submitted via the reporting form – we will not accept documents and reports through email or the messaging function in the application system (GrantOne).
  • Only submit documents for travel expenses.
  • All documents must be attached as a single PDF file.
  • It is a must that the PDF includes an overview of all travel expenses in Danish kroners including a total amount in Danish kroners. The overview has to be the first page of the PDF. If the page is not included you will most likely be asked to resend the report.

  • Reports are processed every Thursday.

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

Tilsagn / afslag

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.

  • Duplicate 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.

NB! Changes will be evaluated by Art Music Denmark’s Music Committee.
