Serbia/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.2 Special artists funds

Five years special support to artists is given, besides regular competitions for art projects, through a special AWARD programme where a Committee evaluates the special contribution of excellence that artists and cultural workers offer to Serbian culture. Up to now, 412 artists have received this recognition (which involves an added annual pension of 500 EUR), while more than 300 candidates applied for the "national pension for artists" in 2012.
