APRA AMCOS: 2024 Art Music Fund


Closes 13 February 2024. Apply for a grant of $7,500 – nine for Australian composers, two for Aotearoa New Zealand.

Since 2016, the grants have funded the composition and creation of new works.

To apply, please follow the AU or NZ guidelines.

Australian and New Zealand art music composers are invited to apply for a $7,500 (AUD) Art Music Fund grant to help them make new musical works a reality. Eleven grants will be allocated to nine Australian and two New Zealand composers, respectively.

The Art Music Fund, now in its ninth funding round, is an initiative of APRA AMCOS, in partnership with the Australian Music Centre and SOUNZ Centre for New Zealand Music.

The per recipient funding of $7,500 is available for the creation of commissioned work that is innovative, displays professional compositional craft and represents a benchmark of excellence in its field. The intention is to support composers to create works with a long artistic and performance life – whether it is presented in a concert hall, via live stream, filmed, as a recording, set to choreography or other formats.

Applications close 13 February 2024 at 5:00pm AEDT.
