PRS Foundation’s Composers’ Fund is an opportunity for composers with a strong track record, giving direct access to funding at pivotal stages in their career.
A contribution of up to £10,000 is available to composers who are already making a significant cultural contribution in the UK and have the potential for greater impact in the UK and overseas.
Managed by PRS Foundation in partnership with Jerwood Arts The Composers’ Fund supports up to 15 composers per year who can make the case for the kind of support that would enable them to make a significant step change in their career.
Previous projects have included recordings, the promotion and performance of existing works, international co-commissions and development, performer collaboration, residencies, sabbaticals or childcare costs and project or promotional support.
Previous recipients include the recent Award winners Charlotte Bray, James Weeks, Hilda Paredes, Gavin Higgins and Erika Fox.
Deadline has been extended to 1 June 2020.
