PRS for Music Foundation to deliver £500k music talent development award

The PRS for Music Foundation will deliver the Music Industry Talent Development Fund to help talented artists and bands to further their careers. The first fund of its kind in the UK is funded by Council and will grant over £500,000 over the next two years.

Grants of up to £15,000 will be available, supporting emerging and mid career artists to develop their recording, writing, performing and touring ambitions.

The PRS for Music Foundation (PRSF), which funds new music and songwriting, is contributing £50,000 to the scheme, and will work in partnership with other music industry bodies to deliver other support to the musicians selected.

Chief Executive Alan Davey, said: “It’s the Arts Council’s job to champion the arts in its many varied forms and for all the arts that means supporting the talent who make it happen”.

The Music Industry Talent Development Fund will be launched to the public in May 2013.
