The Landis & Gyr Foundation awards project grants to Swiss artists and writers active in the areas of film, literature, composition, dance, theatre and visual arts.
Background information on project grants
Project grants are awarded to Swiss artists from all disciplines who, for various reasons, are unable to leave their usual place of work or who are either currently working on, or have plans to work on a project that encompasses one or more residencies at a location of their choice. Recipients of a project grant may choose where and when they will realise their project.
Who may apply?
Applications are accepted from Swiss artists from all disciplines with a proven track record; the call for applications is also open to qualified non-Swiss artists whose official residence has been in Switzerland for three or more years. The project grants are not designed to promote individuals at the start of their artistic careers. There is no age limit. Past recipients of a Landis & Gyr grant must wait at least 10 years before applying for a new grant.
What does the Landis & Gyr Foundation offer?
Every year, the Foundation offers five project grants worth a maximum of CHF 30,000 each.
Application and selection process
In the first phase, candidates submit their fully completed application to the office of the Landis & Gyr Foundation, which sends a confirmation of receipt via e-mail by the end of February 2020 at the latest. In the second phase, the Foundation’s experts assess the applications and subsequently send selected projects to the Foundation Board. The final decision is communicated in writing at the end of May 2020. No correspondence is conducted on the selection process.
