Announcing 10 new Composers’ Fund grantees

Ten of the UK’s most talented composers will be supported through the ground breaking Composers’ Fund to develop their work in the UK and overseas.

In this second round of funding since The Composers’ Fund launch in 2016, the latest 10 composers receiving support are:

The Composers’ Fund was created following PRS Foundation’s research in 2014 exploring the challenges composers meet when striving to steer the next stages of their careers. The research highlighted that composers faced limited access to funding, low commission fees, lack of any support structure, pressurised working conditions and for established and mid-career composers in particular, a decrease in commissioning opportunities.

The fund, was launched by PRS Foundation at City Hall, London in April 2016 with additional support from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.  It aims to support the creative and professional development of talented composers by offering direct access to funding at pivotal stages in their careers. The fund offers £150,000 annually to support composers and enable them to realise projects and ambitions that may not be possible through traditional commissioning models.
