You will be asked to provide two examples of music and a brief description of your project. We will also want to know how your it fits with our funding priorities:
The main reasons applications are not selected to proceed to Stage 1 are eligibility and competition. To make sure your application is eligible see our open funding criteria. For tips on how to make your application stand out, please visit the Application Tips written by grantees, staff and advisors.
Successful Stage 1 applications are invited to progress to Stage 2, for which you will have 2-3 weeks to prepare.
Here you will be asked to provide further information on how your project fits with our funding priorities, focussing on artist development, long-term plans and audiences.
You have the option to submit another example of music at this stage. We will also request a budget, for which a template is provided. If you’re applying as a group or an organisation, we also ask that you send us a balance sheet or bank statement.
