Due to high levels of demand for our funding schemes, we have to restrict the number of applications per calendar year from organisations and music creators across all of our funding schemes.
|Name of Funding Scheme||Number of Applications per Calendar Year|
|The Open Fund for Organisations||1|
|The Open Fund for Music Creators||1|
|Women Make Music||1|
|Momentum Music Fund||2|
|International Showcase Fund||2|
|All Other Schemes||1|
You can apply for a maximum of 3 different schemes per calendar year.
We advise individual composers, artists, bands and other music creators to choose the most appropriate funding scheme between The Open Fund for Music Creators and our targeted support schemes such as Women Make Music, The International Showcase Fund, Steve Reid Innovation Award, Flash Funding or Momentum.
Please contact the team if you are unsure which funding scheme is most appropriate.
Organisations are restricted to receiving one grant per calendar year with the exception of our UK commissioning programmes Beyond Borders and New Music Biennial. For example, an organisation applying to The Open Fund for Organisations may apply for and receive support for Beyond Borders.
Music creators are also restricted to receiving one grant per calendar year. Industry Fund (i.e. Momentum, International Showcase Fund) grantees are invited to contact the grants team if they wish to apply for a separate industry fund (e.g. a Momentum artist seeking International Showcase Fund support in the same calendar year).
Please note, Women Make Music grantees are encouraged to progress to other funding schemes such as The Open Fund for Music Creators or Momentum and will therefore be unable to receive repeat funding through the Women Make Music scheme.
