Music Market Grant

The purpose of the Music Market Grant is to support Danish music operating within the popular/commercial spectrum. The grant also supports individuals who are writing and recording works with the intention of collaboration with third parties – for example to artists, for use in commercials, in films / TV and the like.

All songwriters who are members of Koda can apply for the Music Market Grant.

The Music Market Grant is to support individuals who are writing and recording works with the intention of selling them to third parties – for example to artists, for use in commercials, in films / TV and the like.

The grant also covers recording expenses associated with the recording of titles that have not previously been recorded and released and with the intention of selling them to a third party (artist, band, commercial, synch (film/TV) etc.).

You can’t apply for projects where you are the artist i.e., where your name is on the release. This type of project must be applied in The Recording/Release Grant managed by Koda.

Music Export

The Music Market Grant also supports the export of Danish music within the popular and commercial field. This may include participation in a songwriting camp, a session abroad, foreign songwriters’ trip to Denmark, business meetings abroad, promotional activities (such as concerts / support tours abroad) or legal assistance abroad. 

It is not possible to apply for expenses already incurred, or projects that have been completed before the application deadline.

  • A project description
  • A budget
  • Two examples of your music
  • Documentation proving your collaboration/interaction with partners (this may take the form of an email conversation, a Facebook conversation, etc.)
