* Please note: We will be operating 2 x Open Fund for Organisations deadlines in 2023, and 3 x Open Fund for Music Creator deadlines.
Having held 2 deadlines for each strand in 2022, we have decided to reintroduce the mid-year deadline for music creators based on our analysis of songwriter and composer development needs and much higher demand from creator applicants. We encourage organisations to decide which of the two deadlines works best for their project timelines. Budget allocations will not significantly change from 2022.
