PRS Foundation Funding for High Quality New Music Projects– Deadline: 12th February 2021

The PRS Foundation has announced that grants of up to £10,000 are available to support new music projects led by promoters, talent development organisations, venues, festivals, curators and large performance groups.

Supported projects will involve the creation, performance and promotion of new music and enable music creators, i.e. songwriters, composers, or solo artists, bands, producers and performers of all backgrounds, to develop creatively and professionally.

As a consequence of the pandemic the PRS Foundation has adapted the Open Fund to be more flexible in supporting music creator development needs.

Grants of up to £10,000 are available to composers to cover activities such as: 

Touring; 

Recording; 

Promotion and marketing; 

Commissions of new music by UK based creators; 

Exciting community projects involving high-quality music creators; 

Music creator residencies; 

Live programmes featuring new UK music.

Successful proposals will fit all three of the following funding priorities: 

To support the creation, performance and promotion of outstanding new music in any genre; 

To enable the UK’s most talented music creators to realise their potential; 

To inspire audiences. Please be aware that the PRS Foundation are still accepting applications which involved live performances or other elements which, at the time of writing, are not allowed but will in the future go ahead.
