Music writer/producer fund launch

The music writer/producer fund is launching it’s first round for 2107. This fund has been established to enable songwriters and writer-producers working in popular music genres to progress their careers and writing/production credits. The fund is being offered by the PRS for Music Foundation.

The fund is open to UK-based ‘behind the scenes’ songwriters and writer-producers that have had at least three commercially exploited works. The fund is expected to support up to 12 songwriters / writer-producers in 2017, which is the fund’s pilot year.

Applicants can apply for a grant of up to £10,000. In addition to the funding, successful applicants will receive in-kind support from the PRS for Music Foundation.

The funding is intended to support a number of different creative and professional development activities. The applicant should outline areas of spend which will have an impact on their career.

Activity supported is likely to include:

· Recording costs (eg daily studio hire, tracking, production and mixing fees)
· Costs relating to songwriter camps, co-writes, collaboration, etc
· Musician fees
· Creative / professional development (including training courses if applicable)
· Training / skills courses at places such as Point Blank / SSE
· Marketing and promotional costs related to songs / tracks reaching an audience
· International activity that could build a profile and benefit a creative development
· Project-related maternity or child care costs

The first deadline for receipt of applications is 6pm on 19th June 2017.

There will be a second round opening later in the year with a deadline in late 2017.
