Commercial Grant

The purpose of Commercial Grant is to support projects and commercial initiatives focused on music publishers and songwriters/composers/lyricists in general. Please note, the projects must be pre-approved by Musikforlæggerne’s secretariat, more info under “Application deadline”.

The Commercial Grant welcomes applications from all organizations and individuals who seek to launch commercial initiatives that benefit music publishers and songwriters/composers/lyricists in general.

Market-oriented initiatives and projects, e.g., major music export projects, festival arrangements, podcast on music publishers and songwriters, music business education, music business workshops and similar projects.

Detailed project description and budget

The Commercial Grant is awarded on an ongoing basis, but before you can apply, the project must be pre-approved by Musikforlæggerne’s secretariat. Please send a detailed project description to

Applications for The Commercial Grant are evaluated by the Musikforlæggerne board of directors at an upcoming board meeting.

You can expect an answer to your application within two months of submission.

You cannot receive support for the same project from several pools under Koda Culture. This applies according to 6.D in our regulation. Find the regulation here.

This means that if you for example apply for publication, you can only receive support once for your publishing project. You cannot receive support for publication from both The Publishing pool, The Up-and-Coming Grant and The Recording/Release Grant at the same time. On the other hand, you will be able to receive support for other processes of the same project from other pools. For example, if you have received support for the recording/release part of your project, you can apply for support for the next phase of your project, e.g. for promoting your release or from the PR pools.  

We have pools that support the different processes that your project can go through. The processes can – from an overall point of view – be divided into:

  • Create (idea, clarification, writing)
  • Improve/develop (coaching, camps, education)
  • Release (record, mix, master)
  • 'Disseminate' (PR/marketing, concert production, fairs and exhibitions)

If you have any questions about The Commercial Pool, you can contact Hanne Christensen by email

If you have any technical questions, you can contact Koda,
