Applications for grants from the Pride Parade Fund of Reykjavík Pride and Landsbankinn are now open. The Pride Parade Fund is intended to support participation by individuals and groups in the Pride Parade of Reykjavík Pride festival which takes place 11 August this year.

Landsbankinn has been a proud sponsor of Reykjavík Pride for many years and when the partnership agreement between the organisers of the festival and Landsbankinn was renewed last year, the Pride Parade Fund was created. Landsbankinn furnishes the Fund with ISK 1.5 million per annum, in addition to other support for the festival. The management team of Reykjavík Pride handles the application process and appoints a panel of judges to review applications and award grants from the Pride Fund.

Applications will be received until and including 3 June. All applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges that selects grant recipients and announces the results no later than on 20 June. As a general rule, grant amounts are ISK 100-500,000. We encourage creative individuals and groups to apply for grants to help finance small or larger entries in the Parade.

Adventure of Drag-Súgur in the 2017 Pride Parade

Umræðan showcased the preperations and participation of Drag-Súgur in the 2017 Pride Parade. The float brought up the rear of the Parade and the balloon rainbow adorning it was particularly eye-catching. Drag-Súgur was one of six groups to receive grants from the Pride Parade Fund last year. In addition, Ace received a special motivation award at the end of the Parade. The motivation award is granted an individual or group that is particularly successful in promoting its message in the Pride Parade of Reykjavík Pride.
