AVEK (The Promotion Centre for Audiovisual Culture) was established in 1987 by the Finnish copyright organization Kopiosto.
AVEK uses its share of copyright remuneration to promote audiovisual culture: cinema, video and television. The majority of the funds that AVEK distributes originate from private copying levy, eg. from blank DVDs and digital video recorders.
AVEK aims to reinforce the production structure of the Finnish audiovisual industry by promoting the kind of long-term audiovisual program production that uses the available resources as effectively as possible. AVEK also promotes new talent in the field.
