Grants for illustrated books
The Flemish Literature Fund awards subsidies to foreign publishers for the publication of literary picture books and graphic novels, illustrated by Dutch-speaking Belgian illustrators and originally published by a Flemish or Dutch publishing house. The purpose of such grants is to stimulate the international publication of work by Flemish illustrators and comic artists.
Foreign publishers can apply for financial assistance to cover up to 15% of the production costs and up to 100% of the translation costs of a book illustrated by a Flemish artist. The amount granted is based on the translator’s fee and on the direct production costs (press and prepress).
The application form is a fillable pdf file. You may need a pdf reader such as Adobe Acrobat to be able to fill it out.
