Kickstarter is now accepting project submissions from creators in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Ireland, ahead of the launch of the new public-facing Scandinavian and Irish projects on October 21.

The company said it wanted to give users in these four countries enough time to get their projects up to scratch before opening them up to the public for potential financial backing.

That said, there won’t be specific Scandinavian and Irish-only Kickstarter project pages, but it is possible to filter search results by location. Naturally, as with existing Kickstarter projects, backers can be located anywhere in the world.

Kickstarter said there are no rules for which language projects should be displayed in, but it recommended providing an English version of the description and rewards to attract most attention.

Before today, Kickstarter was open to projects in Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the UK and the US.
