All projects that promote locations either culturally or economically are eligible for funding.

We additionally support cultural events and festivals as well as investments and qualification programmes. nordmedia offers three submission dates for applications in all funding areas each year. The decision to grant funds to applicants is the responsibility of the nordmedia allocation committee. Besides other criteria, funds are only granted to applicants on condition that the amount awarded is at least 100% disbursed in either Niedersachsen or Bremen. The staff of nordmedia will be glad to deal with your enquiries, to provide assistance in the preparation of your applications and to help you to get access to global media markets.
nordmedia organises the support scheme in collaboration with strong company associates and partners. Financial contributions are not only provided by the state of Niedersachsen and the Hanseatic City of Bremen but also by the broadcasters NDR, Radio Bremen and the ZDF.
