Frame awards grants to promote and support Finnish visual arts in the following fields of contemporary art: fine art, photographic art, media art, art handicraft, comics art, performance art and sound art. 

Frame awards two types of grants: a travel grant that can be applied for at any time, and a project grant that has two application periods per year. The travel grant is intended for artists, art experts and workgroups. The project grant is intended for organisations for international exhibitions and art fairs. In addition, artists and organisations can apply for a project grant for international art publications.

The purpose of the travel grant is to promote the international mobility and networking of art experts in order to promote the opportunities of Finnish art and artists for international interaction and the exhibition of Finnish art internationally. The purpose of grants awarded by Frame is based on the strategy of the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and Frame’s own strategy.
