Describe the main features of the policy/measure:
The key objectives of this financial measure developed by HDS-ZAMP are: to enable a richer offer of cultural (primarily musical) content for Croatian citizens; and to enable additional funding for Croatian composers and other music professionals to get backing for their artistic projects. The projects supported through the measure differ in their artistic and stylistic background, and are aimed at diverse publics so as to be able to contribute to the broader diversity of music expressions in Croatia. The measure is developed through five different contests: BTL Contest - Support for projects of popular music funded through blank tape levy fund; Contest ‘Tradicional’ - support for music events and music creation from the area of traditional music funded through funds from the fees collected for traditional music; International Contest - Supporting activities of Croatian composers and music publishers, members of HDS, on the international music scene or on the market; Fund "Rudolf and Margita Matz" - stimulation of the creation of young composers from the funds of Rudolf and Margita Matz; and ElectroCro Contest - Support of music events, projects and music creation in the area of electronic club music.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?:
With the measure implemented over a longer period of time HDS aims to become a permanent corrective on the music scene. The measure would contribute in making available a number of valuable music projects of all-round artistic and stylistic expressions throughout Croatia. This is already evident through the diversity of projects funded through this call, with around 100 projects funded yearly in different music areas stemming from electro to traditional music genres.
