Details about the funding
This grant aims specifically at supporting the publication of sheet music, so applying for/receiving this grant will not count towards the relevant authors’ maximum allowance of two applications/grants per year. A music publisher can submit a maximum of 10 applications for each application round, except in the case of special projects. It is possible to submit applications for funding for projects that have already been completed; however, the application must be submitted during the year in which the relevant project was completed.
