Danish Art Foundation

Danish literature abroad

Subsidies for literary events and marketing Danish literature abroad. Applications for subsidies are accepted from foreign publishers, diplomatic representations abroad, cultural institutions and others who wish to promote and increase knowledge about Danish literature outside Denmark.

Deadline

* Note: Applications are processed as quickly as possible within four weeks. Projects with a budget of more than DKK 25,000 must expect a longer processing time of approximately three months from the time of application.

Who may apply?

Organisers of literary events abroad, foreign publishers, diplomatic representations abroad, cultural institutions and others are encouraged to apply. Foreign residencies may also apply to have some of the expenses related to the accommodation of Danish authors covered.

The names of the applicants for subsidies from the Danish Arts Foundation will be announced on the Danish Arts Foundation's website at www.danisharts.dk

Please note: Applications to cover travel expenses for authors in connection with readings or book signing sessions must be submitted to the Literary Exchange Fund.

Purpose of the program

The programme is intended to promote the dissemination of and knowledge about Danish literature abroad.

How your application will be evaluated?

In the evaluation, the committee will give priority to the following:

  • Professional organisers of literary events
  • Events involving work that has been translated and is available in the market are given priority, but this is not a requirement
  • An evaluation of the authorship’s significance to a foreign audience
  • A total evaluation of the significance of the project regarding the dissemination of Danish literature abroad, taking both the quality and the scope of the project into account
  • Alternative and innovative ideas
  • Projects for which considerations regarding the target group are clear
  • Projects that have been prepared sufficiently to have reached a stage at which possibilities for agreements with the participants have been explored

The evaluation will also include an estimate of which projects have the greatest significance for disseminating knowledge about Danish literature abroad, and which events ensure spreading of the support. Applications are not accepted for support to ordinary readings abroad; see the Literary Exchange Fund instead.

Who will evaluate your application?

Your application will be evaluated by the Danish Arts Foundation's Committee for Literary Funding.

How much you may apply for?

Organisers may apply for partial funding to cover activities in connection with literary events and the marketing of one or more Danish books abroad.

The committee reserves the right to not allocate the full amount that is applied for, based on the overall priority that art subsidies must be provided to as many people and projects as possible.
