The deadline for the next round of the Arts Council's Deis Award is Thursday 9 June 2016 at 5.30pm. The window for making an application opens on Tuesday 10 May 2016.

The objective of the Deis Award is to provide support for traditional arts projects. Projects that are led by the traditional arts and involve collaboration with other artforms are also eligible. Deis supports one-off or short-term projects only and other funding will not be granted under the award.

Priority will be given to projects that demonstrate:
• Attention to artistic quality
• Innovation
• Significant benefit to the traditional arts community.

The Deis Award is open to individuals, groups, bands and organisations.

All awards are informed by the Arts Council’s ten-year strategy (2016-2025) Making Great Art Work.

Award Guidelines for the Deis Award are published on the available funding section on our website.

Applications will only be accepted through the Arts Council’s online services website. The applicant must be registered with the online services site prior to making an application. It is recommended that applicants allow five working days for registration prior to making an application.

Please note – Applications for projects centred on the publication of work, such as tutorials, tune collections, critical writing, etc. will be not be eligible for the Deis Award, but are eligible for application to the Deis Recording and Publication Award, the deadline for which will be announced in early 2016.
