Working Grant

The purpose of the Working Grant is to support the creation of new music within the genres of art music, sound art and related genres.

Note: We will open for the receipt of applications for the next round on 18 August 2021.

The purpose of the Work Grant is to support the creation of new music within the genres of art music, sound art and related genres.

The Work Grant welcomes applications from all composers who are members of Koda and who wish to immerse themselves in compositional work. The Work Grant is aimed at composers working within the genre of art music – which may include sound art, experimental electronic music, and related genres.

The Working Grant provides support for a compositional work process or an artistic process that you wish to begin, develop, and complete. You can apply for grants on varying scales:

Large working grants of DKK 50.000 or DKK 75.000

Small working grants from DKK 10.000 to DKK 40.000

NB! The Working Grant does not support commissioned works; in such cases, please apply to the Commission grant instead

** NB on Working Grants: Please note that as long as you have an open application for a working grant, you cannot apply for other working grants. An open application is an application where you have applied but have not yet received a response.

  • A brief application, approx. one page (submit as a PDF), describing your artistic project and outline the work and process you wish to start.

  • Audio file
  • CV (submit as a PDF).

The Work Grant is awarded four times annually. The application deadlines are:

March 1st

June 1st

September 15th

December 1st

Applications for the Work Grant will be evaluated by a committee. In 2021, the committee comprises of:

Lars Lundhave (Commitee chair)

Martin Stauning

Lars Kynde

Anne Clement (external member)

Successful applicants for the larger working grants will receive DKK 50.000 or 75.000

Recipients of smaller working grants will get from DKK 10.000 to 25.000.

If you received one of the large working grants of DKK 50,000 or DKK 75,000, you cannot receive any additional working grants (including for other purposes) within that year. You may be granted more than one smaller working grants in one calendar year. Please note, always apply for a specific amount.

You will receive a reply to your application approximately two months after the application deadline.
