    Deadlines for the ‘Stiftung Kulturwerk’ Cultural Foundation

    The ‘Stiftung Kulturwerk’ cultural foundation has been entrusted with the cultural mandate vested in the Verwertungsgesellschaft Bild-Kunst [Visual Arts Collecting Society]. It promotes projects of incorporated organisations of visual artists, awards grants to photographers, illustrators, graphic artists and graphic designers and sponsors projects of cultural significance in the film sector. The foundation’s funds come from the revenues of VG Bild-Kunst. The society is required by the German Copyright Administration Act to use a certain proportion of the proceeds it generates from the management of copyrights to promote cultural objectives in all three professional groups.
