Hi! The English site is only a beta for now and still has many errors (especially in names and locations).
We are working hard to fix them and making more content available than ever before so expect constant updates.
Are you working on a book, a film, a TV series, a website, or any other kind of project related to the history of Reykjavík and plan to use images from the Reykjavík Museum of Photography in your project? Then you can apply for a grant from Reykjavík City to offset the purchase cost. The grant is a discount on the cost of publishing images.f
Applications for visual storytelling grants should include information about the applicant as well as a project description. It should also include a price estimate from the Reykjavík Museum of Photography for planned image purchases, in accordance with the Museum's fees. The grant does not cover the value-added tax on the use of images.
The goal of the grant is to support the robust communication of Reykjavík's cultural heritage and history. A panel, composed of three Reykjavík City specialists from the Department of Culture & Sports, reviews applications and makes recommendations to the Culture, Sports & Leisure Council.
