The Ornamo Foundation awards grants and rewards to members of Ornamo ry. The grant decisions reflect the human capital of the artists and designers behind the funds and testamentary funds in the care of the foundation.

The decision to award grants is made annually, based on the financial situation. The grant committee of Ornamo ry, consisting of leading professionals in the field of art and design, presents the board with a proposal on grant recipients.

All members of Ornamo ry may apply for grants from the Ornamo foundation. You can apply for a grant for the development of your work, project or product. The applicant does not have to define a specific fund in the application.

The application form can be filled in English.
