How to apply for support from us
The infographic below shows the general steps involved in applying and information on how the process continues once you have received the support. More detailed application instructions for each of the grants can be found on separate pages (see list above).
Applications and final reports in the online application system
All AVEK grants are applied for through our application system. This is also where the final reports are submitted.
The system displays incomplete applications and applications that require a final report. An incomplete application can be saved and its contents edited.
Application deadlines vary according to the type of support. On the final day of the application period, the applications must be submitted to the AVEK online application system by 4 pm at the latest.
Registering for the system
Applications can be submitted as a private person, a work group or a representative of an organisation (production company, association, etc.).
Individuals and work groups must create a new account in the system before submitting their first application. Your email address will serve as your username. You can choose the password yourself.
Representatives of organisations must either create a new organisation account in the system or join an existing one. If your production company or the association you represent has no incomplete applications in the AVEK application system, please register in the system and then create a new organisation account on the “Make an application” page, using the “Create a new organisation” button. You should register with a personal email address, not the general address for your organisation.
The main user of the organisation is defined as the “owner” of the account. The owner of an organisation account can add other users to the organisation and delete users when necessary.
Previous applications that had unpaid installments on 31 December 2021 have been moved to the new AVEK application system. In order to view the organisation’s applications that have been moved in the system, you need to submit a request to join the organisation’s account on the “Make an application” page, using the “Join organisation” button. The requests are processed by AVEK.
