We’re excited to announce that our Covid-19 Composer Awards are open once again for applications.
We will be awarding up to 15 small-scale grants of £500 to composers and music creators in the UK. These can be used to purchase essential equipment, develop skills, or gain vital artistic and practical insight and experience in working with professional musicians, ensembles or other artistic collaborators, with a view to supporting individuals’ longer-term ability to sustain themselves and their careers.
These awards are not designed as a hardship fund or to supplement projects which have confirmed grant support already.
Following this period of restrictions and uncertainty, Round 5 of the Covid-19 Composer Award is for composers and music creators from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
