    IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING CHANGES TO THE FUNDING CRITERIA, EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2007


      To be sure your project is eligible for funding from the Federal Cultural Foundation, we ask you to please read our funding
      criteria for “General Project Funding” on our website www.kulturstiftung-bund.de.
      Please note the following important points:

           1.   General Project Funding only grants funding to projects with an international context.

           2.   The Federal Cultural Foundation only considers projects that apply for at least 50,000 euro from General Project
                Funding.

           3.   In your Cost and Finance Plan (CFP), you must show that you have secured at least 20 percent of the total cost
                of your project with your personal resources and/or third-party financing. The Federal Cultural Foundation is
                obliged to reject applications which provide no proof of any secured personal and/or third-party financing by the
                submission deadline.

           4.   The Federal Cultural Foundation cannot grant funding to projects which have begun, effected payments or
                entered contractual agreements prior to the Jury session. Please see our website for the dates of the upcoming
                Jury session.

      When planning your project, please note that funding cannot be paid out any earlier than six weeks following the Jury’s
      decision.

      The Federal Cultural Foundation will refuse funding or demand the return of monies already paid out if it finds significant
      discrepancies in your project’s description or Cost and Finance Plan (CFP). This also applies if the Foundation is not
      immediately informed of later changes concerning significant aspects of your project.

      The Foundation’s Jury can only review your application if it is submitted on time. The Jury’s funding decisions are based
      on the documents the Federal Cultural Foundation has received from you by the application deadline. Please visit our
      website for the dates of the next Jury session and application deadlines. Your funding request will be reviewed if the
      application form (no duplicates, please!) is completed and submitted along with any additional material by the application
      deadline.

      As soon as we have processed your application, you will receive automatic notification of receipt no later than a week
      after the application deadline. Please make sure that the additional material and documents are also complete so that our
      Jury can appropriately evaluate your application. You may not resubmit an application which the Jury has already
      rejected.

      In addition to the application form, we require the following documents by the application deadline:
           - Written confirmation of participation by the artistic director who you have named (e.g., the curator of an
                exhibition, the director of a theatre production) or participants with similar responsibilities
           - Written confirmation of funding (or, if not yet available, statements of intent) by other sponsors (Please do not
                send originals! You can download a sample letter of confirmation from our website.)
           - Written confirmation of participation from cooperative partners (e.g., performance or event venues) including the
                financial contribution they agree to make to your project
           - A complete, two-page Cost and Finance Plan (DIN A4, portrait format.)
           - A complete list of artists, their countries of origin and short CVs
           - A detailed project description (optional)
           - Supplementary materials related to your project, e.g., CDs, DVDs, photos, books,
                catalogues, etc. (if applicable)

      8.2. SECURED FINANCING

        In the positions below, only list the cash amounts which you have already secured for your project, such as personal
        capital (your contribution) and third-party financing. In accordance with the new funding criteria effective August 1, 2007,
        your total secured financing must cover at least 20 percent of the cost of your project. Important: Neither the proceeds nor
        expenses in your CFP can include payments in kind or services which are normally covered by the operating budget of an
        institution (e.g., use of rooms for functions, technical equipment, accommodations, permanent staff) or volunteer work,
        i.e., services which are not remunerated. Consequently, you are not permitted to include such non-monetary services and
        payments in kind when calculating the 20 percent of your personal and/or third-party financial contribution. We require
        written confirmation of financing from all third-parties listed below (also see “Additional Material”). If your proceeds happen
        to be lower than expected, you are liable for compensating the financial shortfall with other means.

                                                                                                                           EUR

      12. STATEMENT




        1. I confirm that the information I have provided above is complete and true. I undertake to immediately inform the
           Federal Cultural Foundation of all relevant changes to the project, in particular, those regarding its financing.

        2. I am aware that I have no legal claim to funding from the Federal Cultural Foundation. The Foundation will only
           award funding on a contractual basis, based on the project’s description and Cost and Finance Plan submitted by
           the applicant. If the applicant is found to have influenced the Foundation's decision with false information in these
           documents or in this application, the Foundation reserves the right to refuse the payment of funding and demand the
           return of all monies already paid out to the applicant.

        3. I, the undersigned, hereby give the Federal Cultural Foundation permission to store the information and personal
           data which I have provided and to forward this to third parties, inasmuch as the information is necessary for the
           planned funding of my project. I expressly authorize the Federal Cultural Foundation to store this information for
           purposes of internal archiving and administration, as well as make it available to the members of the Foundation's
           Board of Trustees and Jury to enable them to carry out their responsibilities. Furthermore, I permit the Foundation to
           publicize my name and project should my project be awarded funding.
