We process applications continuously, so you can expect our reply within 1-2 months. We receive many applications. Unfortunately, we can only approve some of them as our means are limited.
The money granted by the Danish Soloist Union comes from Gramex, an organisation approved by the Ministry of Culture.
Gramex collects payment when a recorded track of music is broadcast in public, e.g. on the radio, on TV and in stores. This amount is then distributed to the rights holders of the track, that is the vocalists, musicians and record companies.
However, Gramex is not always able to distribute all the money. Some of it goes into a pool of collective funds that are then distributed among nine of the artists’ own organisations, including the Danish Soloist Union.
Structure your application around three main headlines, and make sure to explain all of them.

You are a good project leader
