Developed through consultation with a broad range of composers and organisations, Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles are designed to act as a code of best practice for running successful, open and inclusive artist development programmes, competitions and awards for composers.
In signing up, PRS Foundation are committing to enact the Fair Access Principles across their work over the next two years. We recognise that organisations will need time to think about and implement changes within their programmes.
You can read their reasons for signing up and future commitments the organisation have made below.
PRS Foundation’s Statement
“PRS Foundation believes that the success of the projects we fund is driven by the diversity of our grantees. Until open call programmes are more inclusive, we miss out on exceptional talent. We are therefore working closely with other funders and talent development experts to ensure opportunities are more accessible, and fully endorse Sound and Music’s Fair Access Principles.”
– Joe Frankland, CEO of PRS Foundation
