For agents and publishers

Grants for export and market initiatives for Norwegian books and authors abroad

The scheme will help strengthen exports, demand and market development for Norwegian books and authors abroad, and in doing so increase the earnings for Norwegian participants. The projects for which grants are applied for should be aimed at opening new markets for one or more books or authors; or aimed at the further development of existing markets. The grant scheme is intended to stimulate good market ideas and initiatives for titles that have specific export potential, as well as initiating new and strengthening existing collaborative projects with international publishers, sub-agents and other relevant partners.

The scheme is financed by NORLA with funds from the government’s investment in the cultural and creative industries, and will reinforce actors in the value chain working with the marketing and selling of Norwegian art and culture internationally. The maximum amount that can be applied for is NOK 50,000.

The grant can be applied for by professional Norwegian companies or persons working with international literary rights sales.
