Apply for Production Funding

Submit your production funding application by April 2, 2024 by noon 12:00. The application form can be found at the bottom of this page.

Proposals should be written in Finnish or English. The city of Oulu's units cannot apply for funding. Oulu Days can acquire selected events or performances or support the event by lending facilities and equipment. We will contact the applicants we have selected by the end of April. All Oulu Days' events must adhere to Oulu Days' communication guidelines for event organizers.

We are hoping for our program to include content that highlights traditions as well as content that creates new urban culture!

Criteria to be emphasized in the selections:

  • diverse distribution of the program events around the city
  • new types of event content or connected to the local tradition
  • consideration of different target groups

The application can be submitted once and cannot be edited after sending. You will receive a confirmation email when your application has been succesfully submitted. It might take a while for the message to arrive.

The jury reserves the right to determine the amount of the funding granted. Oulu Days acquires program for the festival, the funding we provide is not a grant. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us: 

We are looking forward to your ideas!
