In April 2020, as a response to the Covid-19 crisis, we repurposed the Francis Chagrin Awards and turned it into the Covid-19 Composer Awards, as a means of supporting composers with the immediate challenges arising from the pandemic.
After relaunching the Francis Chagrin Awards late last year, we’re now open for applications to Round 3 of the Awards, with an eligibility focus on young composers and music creators aged between 18-25.
We will be awarding up to 12 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.
Deadline: 23:59, 22nd February 2023
The Francis Chagrin Awards are made possible with the generous support of individuals like you. There are many ways to get involved and every donation really does make a difference.
