The purpose of the Writing Camps is to provide composers and songwriters with inspiration, new skills/insights into music and/or the opportunity to create new music together. This is done through specially planned, professional courses. Writing Camps can take place in Denmark or abroad and typically last between four to seven days. We offer approximately 12 camps of this kind a year.

The Writing Camps welcomes applications from all Koda members who are interested in the relevant genre or subject addressed by the camp in question.
Taking part in a writing camp.
Application text: State the reason(s) why this particular writing camp will make a real difference to you and your career (2,500 characters or less).
Three music files, mp3 format and/or m4a-format (do not use special characters in titles; file sizes must not exceed 10MB in total). Alternatively, you may provide links. If you provide links, you are responsible for ensuring that the links work and can be accessed by the recipient.
A description of the music files attached: What music have you chosen to include and why? Your description should be provided as a PDF file.
Any additional texts relevant to the projected writing camp – as PDF files.
CV/mini biography – as a PDF file.
Writing camps are offered on an ongoing basis, so the deadlines for applying vary. For a list of the camps currently offered by DJBFA and the deadlines for applying, click here.
All applications will be evaluated by the Writing Camp project manager and one or more co-teachers or partners involved in the camp.
Successful applicants will be allowed to take place in the relevant writing camp; this includes travel costs, hotel accommodation, the events planned and, to some extent, catering. All participants will pay either DKK 1.000 or DKK 2.000 to take part in the camp; the specific amount depends on the exact nature of the relevant camp.
You will typically receive a reply two to three weeks 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)
