The Elite Grant

The Elite Grant is targeted at the professional elite, whose production conditions and costs are significantly higher than other projects, but where the project has the potential to increase Danish rights income and exports significantly to the benefit of the Danish music industry in general.

Applicants can grant a power of attorney to, for example, a record company or manager to apply on their behalf. 

You cannot apply if you have received a grant in the previous year (applies to grant recipients from 2022).

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.
