PRS for Music Foundation and Arts Council England have announced the launch of the Momentum Music Fund.
This is a £500,000 fund to develop the careers of talented artists and bands.
It is anticipated that grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 will be awarded to between 50 and 75 artists/bands over the next 2 years.
Applications can be submitted by the artists themselves or those who are working on their behalf, e.g. a manager, an independent label or publisher.
Priority will be given to those that haven’t been funded by PRS for Music Foundation in the previous 12 months.
The next application deadline is the 11th October 2013.
