Help Musicians call for more emerging artists

HelpMusiciansUKforwebHelp Musicians is calling for more artists to apply for its Emerging Excellence Awards and win £3,000 worth of funding.

The grant is aimed at musicians and songwriters in the early stages of their musical career.

Previously acts have applied for support with their touring and recording costs, promotion and marketing and other opportunities to kickstart their careers.

Little Bear, Robin Adams and London collective DeLooze were announced as Help Musicians UK’s latest Emerging Excellence artists earlier in the year.

Artists and songwriters looking to submit an application need to go through a two-stage process. All applications will be initially assessed for eligibility by Help Musicians UK staff and considered by independent panels of musicians and music industry advisors.

The next deadline is Thursday 12 June 2014 at 5.00pm.

Visit the Help Musicians website to find out more details on how to apply for the grant.
