The March application round is aimed at projects that will be realised from March to December 2015. Frame informs the applicants of the decisions on grants awarded personally and also publishes the information on the Frame website ca. 8 weeks from the end of the application period.

Frame’s grant procedure is based on the annual state subsidies received by the foundation from the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture.

The mission of the Frame Foundation, established in 2012, is to strengthen the position of Finnish visual art by promoting international cooperation and increasing interaction between Finnish and international institutions and professionals in the field of visual art.

Grants are awarded to

·      Fund visual art events held abroad featuring one or more artists, an artist group, or a visual art professional either of Finnish nationality or based in Finland.

·      Foreign-language publications promoting a Finnish artist’s work or Finnish art.

·      The organisation of visits by visual art experts in Finland and abroad.

Frame’s grants can be applied by private persons, such as Finnish visual artists and artists based in Finland, as well as Finnish and international curators and producers. 
Finnish working groups, as well as Finnish and foreign organisations and associations, such as art museums, galleries and cultural institutes, can also apply.
