The Directorate-General for the Arts (DGArtes) of Portugal reopened on Friday the contests for artistic projects to win financial support worth 2.8 million euros (3.09 million U.S. dollars) in total.

Culture Minister Graca Fonseca pointed out that the amount foreseen for this year "means an increase of 780,000 euros (861,000 U.S. dollars) compared to 2019", according to a statement from DGArtes quoted by Portuguese Lusa News Agency.

The minister explains that "different levels of support" have been set, ranging from 1,000 to 50,000 euros, with registrations closing in July. The winners would be announced in September, according to the minister.

"These are projects that include activities in face-to-face, virtual or a combination of the two," said the minister.

Financial support is available for all artistic areas, including street arts, dance, music, theater and even architecture, visual arts, design, photography and multimedia.

Associations, informal groups or even individuals can apply, as long as they carry out "professional activities in artistic areas" in Portugal.

The opening of this year's DGArtes grants was scheduled for March, but was postponed due to the state of emergency decree amid the pandemic of COVID-19.
