Travel grants for Norwegian authors and lecturers invited to attend (physical or digital) festivals or conferences abroad

NORLA has been commissioned by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to administrate a limited annual amount to be allocated to Norwegian authors and lecturers who have been invited to festivals or conferences abroad.

Due to the corona situation, it is currently difficult to invite Norwegian authors to international festivals, launches and other events abroad. Foreign publishers, festival organizers and other parties who wish to create digital events with Norwegian authors can therefore apply for support for webinars, podcasts, interviews in the form of film recordings etc. It is also possible to apply for support for advertising and publicity of author and literature programs in digital media.

Please use the standard application form, without filling in travel details.
There is no application deadline.

NORLA’s support will normally cover airline tickets (economy class) only.

Applications must be sent by the organiser from the foreign country at least one month ahead of the planned event, by using the application form (below).
Applications are processed year-round in monthly meetings (no deadline).

Information about funding awarded by NORLA is to appear in the information about the event, in addition to NORLA’s logo (download it here).

After the event the organiser shall send a short report to NORLA with a summary of the event, the number of participants, etc. and preferably also photos (please use the form below).

Books from Norway provides you with English-language information about all genres of Norwegian literature. The information is provided by the rightsholders and NORLA.
