Note: We will open for the receipt of applications for the next round 3 weeks before deadline. 

The PR and Promotion grant welcomes applications from all songwriters, producers, composers and lyricists who are members of Koda.

You can apply for funding for marketing efforts and other promotional activities, including support tours, music videos, promotion assistance etc.

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

  • An application – one page or less (submit as a PDF file).
  • Audio file
  • CV (submit as a PDF file).

Applications for the PR and Promotion grant are accepted 2 times a year. The application deadlines are:

Applications for the PR and Promotion grant are assessed by the DPA Market committee. In 2021/2022, the committee comprises of:

Mattias Kolstrup

Committee 2:
Ihan Haydar

If you are awarded a grant, you will receive a pledge for support; this pledge will remain valid for one year from the date on which your grant was awarded. If your project is not completed within a year, you can request an extension. Extensions are granted for a maximum of one year from the date of your request to have your pledge extended.

Getting a pledge means that the grant will be paid out when we receive the relevant documentation (receipts, agreement, invoices etc.). Please note that the grant does not cover daily allowances.

If you wish to spend the grant funds for a different purpose than the one stated in your application, you must first get permission to do so from the grant committee.

You will receive a reply to your application approximately one month after the application deadline.

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)
