A maximum of two selections can be made, but please note that the applications will generally be assessed by one’s first choice of expert.

The application will be evaluated by a wide-ranging expert on the artistic field that you choose as option 1.
In multidisciplinary applications, more than one evaluator of different art fields may assess the application if it is essential for the application, and you must state why.

The processing of applications is based on peer review. The reviewers are specialists in the relevant field or sub-discipline under which the application has been collocated, and they have the necessary experience to assess applications. There is usually just one reviewer per application. We estimate that in this way we can choose more interesting projects than when the reviewers are many and they must resort to compromise. Peer reviewers usually change each year in order to guarantee the diversity of views.

We do not publish the names of the evaluators, since we wish to allow and encourage the anonymous evaluators and peer reviewers to make bold funding suggestions.

Evaluator profiles are:

  • Audiovisual arts
  • Literature
  • Music
  • Performing arts
  • Visual arts.
