PRS Foundation Call for New Music

Posted on June 3, 2010

PRS for Music Foundation launches New Music 20×12 as part of London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

We’re looking for 20 brand new musical works, of outstanding creative excellence, each lasting 12 minutes. Together these will celebrate the UK’s musical talent and creativity throughout 2012 and beyond.

We have up to £10,000 available for each of the 20 commissions and each of these will be broadcast round the world on BBC Radio 3.

Are you a not for profit organisation, venue, promoter, ensemble or festival commissioning work from UK-based composers, music creators or ensembles? And do you have a proven track record of being able to successfully promote, produce and host new commissions? If this sounds like you then submit your application now.

If you are a composer, ensemble or music creator you will need to partner with one of the aforementioned not for profit organisations in order to apply. Your best first port of call will be your local established arts, cultural and creative centres and venues.

UK-wide call for applications is now open; deadline 1st October 2010.
