1) Works may be made available on the Internet either as complete performance materials and a recording (option A) or only as a score and a recording (option B), depending on whether the work is made available by the composer him/herself or through a publisher or another authorised agent.
In the case of option A the grant is allocated as previously, i.e. 60% for the composer’s remuneration and 40% to cover other costs; while in the case of option B the proportion shifts to 50:50% or 40:60% (works for more than 45 performers). Option B envisages the possibility of renting parts from publishers or composers, and the cost may be reimbursed.
2) Costs related to a second and third performance of the new work by the same set of performers but in a different city than the premiere performance may optionally be refunded.
This change is meant to facilitate more performances of the new works and collaborations between festivals and ensembles. As a result, the maximal sum that can be requested was increased to PLN 152,000 (applications envisaging three performances altogether). This increase of budget does not change the sum allocated to the composer. Detailed guidelines are available below.
Eligible entities are Polish state culture institutions; local culture institutions; non-governmental institutions; churches and religious communities, or legal persons formed by them; art universities and collages; state schools providing art education at primary and secondary level; non-state schools providing art education at primary and secondary level; businesses.
