WOMEN MAKE MUSIC CRITERIA

lauramvula288x257 LauraJurd288x257

Women Make Music is available to any music creator whose project or programme fits with all three of our funding priorities:

 

  1. To support the creation, performance and promotion of outstanding new music in any genre

We are particularly interested in the quality of the music

  1. To enable the UK’s most talented music creators to realise their potential

We are interested in how your project will develop the songwriters and composers involved. We are committed to supporting UK based songwriters and composers of all backgrounds

  1. To inspire audiences

You will be asked to outline who you are reaching and how. This includes audiences at a local, regional, national or international level

 

You may also find it useful to consult our list of Frequently Asked Questions.

Please note that we no longer fund organisations through Women Make Music. If you came to this page looking for funding as an organisation to commission a woman music creator for an upcoming project, please apply to the Open Fund for Organisations, where projects involving a diverse range of music creators will be looked on favourably.

What is a music creator?

The following are considered by PRS for Music Foundation to be Music Creators:

Activities we can support:

Applicants with access requirements

We recognise that for disabled music creators with access requirements, some proposed activity which supports music creator development (e.g. live performance, touring, access to studios) incurs additional costs, meaning that applicants may require grant support of more than £5,000.

Music creators with access requirements are advised that:
– When submitting Stage 1 applications, applicants should submit Total Project Budget and Request Amounts that do not consider additional access costs.
– When submitting Stage 2 applications which includes a budget section, please outline non-accessibility related expenditure and income. An additional budget question allows applicants to detail additional access requirements needs which will be considered by management team and will therefore not be seen or considered by external advisors unless mentioned in main Funding Priority responses.

Funding decisions will not be affected by additional accessibility support requests and if selected, an appropriate offer amount will be pledged.

We can’t support:

Companies limited by shares will be considered on a case by case basis.
