Marketing Regulation Deadline

In 2017, DME proudly introduced the co-financing regulation for international release campaigns. In the meantime, the Marketing Regulation has grown into a success regulation in which DME has been able to assist over 100 Dutch artists once or sometimes even several times in order to increase limited marketing budgets, in order to increase international opportunities and to achieve greater successes. With the wide variety of pop music genres supported via the regulation, we can now also assure ourselves of a good spread in hip-hop/R&B, electronic music and the more traditional genres within the regulation is served equally well.

However, the success of the regulations now also calls for adjustment in the application process. DME their aim is to offer as many artists as possible a fair chance to receive international marketing support within the available annual budget. Given the high demand for the regulation, choices have to be made in order to stay within the maximum available budget. In order to work as honest as possible and to enable everyone to submit a marketing plan, a fixed period for submitting a Marketing Regulations application has been chosen for the remaining months of 2023.

If you intend to submit a Marketing Regulation application for 2023, please do so before the 1st of July 2023 via clicking here.

DME will announce on August the 14th 2023 which artists receives the Marketing Regulation in the second half of 2023.
