The Writing Camp pool can be searched by autos and music publishers who are members of Koda as well as external collaborators.
You can apply for in-house songwriting camps and external songwriting camps with other participants. It must be described in the application whether the camp is targeted at specific artists, or to a catalogue and who has the hosting. The grant does not support individual songwriters who travel out to camps or participate individually in local camps.
All expenses related to songwriter camp, including travel expenses, accommodation, and study rent, can be applied for, however, the support cannot be used for catering.

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)
