Production subsidies for illustrated Norwegian books

NORLA has two schemes offering production subsidies for illustrated books.

PRODUCTION SUBSIDY FOR PUBLICATION OF ILLUSTRATED FICTION
Foreign publishers, including publishers in the Nordic region, wishing to publish fiction picture books/illustrated novels/graphic novels by Norwegian authors and illustrators may apply for production subsidies. The publication must uphold the same production standard as the Norwegian publication.
The publisher must simultaneously apply for a translation subsidy from NORLA.

It is possible to apply for a production subsidy from NORLA for up to NOK 8,000.
Normally the production grants will be between NOK 3,000 and 5,000.

The application must be submitted using the application form (below).

The application deadlines for production subsidies for illustrated books are the same as for NORLA’s translation subsidies for fiction:
1 April, 1 August and 15 November.

We look forward to receiving your application.

PRODUCTION SUBSIDY FOR PUBLICATION OF ILLUSTRATED NON-FICTION
Foreign publishers, including publishers in the Nordic region, can apply for production subsidies for the publication of Norwegian non-fiction books containing a large number of illustrations or with exceptionally demanding technical production requirements. The publication must uphold the same production standard as the Norwegian publication.
The publisher must simultaneously apply for a translation subsidy from NORLA.

It is possible to apply for a production subsidy from NORLA for up to NOK 16,000.

The application must be submitted using the application form (below).

The application deadlines for production subsidies for illustrated non-fiction are the same as for the translation subsidies for non-fiction:
1 February, 1 June and 1 October.

We look forward to receiving your application.
