Statens kunstnerstipend 2021

The Art Council Norway has announced their lists for Statens kunstnerstipend 2021 (Government Grants for Artists 2021, and the Norwegian Association of Fine Arts Photographers (FFF) congratulates all those who have received grants!

The Art Council has informed that there was a record number of people who applied to for 2021 - a total of 11.262 applications from almost 5000 applicants!

Even though an extra 309 temporary government grants for artists was selected and awarded for 2021, including the ordinary grants, the allocation percentage is still too low. The artist organizations are working continuously with this matter to try and raise the percentage, and we mean that the temporary grants must be converted to regular grants.
