The Regulatory Decree ndeg364/007 (2007) regulates the registration of cultural artistic promotion projects of the contest fund for culture and the national council for the evaluation and promotion of cultural artistic projects. In article 6 it is established that the decision-making must be done by a jury board and that the Ministry of Culture must make public calls for contest funds.
The juries committees integration is responsibility of the administrators ensuring the plurality of artistic and cultural expressions. Decision of the jury: the jurors make a list of found priority, in which the cultural artistic interest of the projects is established.
The committee has technical autonomy, and must consider that the project selected does not violate the values of human dignity and Human Rights.
