In recognition of the limited opportunities for art music composers to have their works performed, APRA AMCOS has initiated the Art Music Fund.
Australian and New Zealand composers are now invited to apply for a grant from a total pool of AUD$100,000. The funding is available for the creation of commissioned work that is complemented by an exploitation program – designed to maximise the life of the work.
It is expected that composers will collaborate with ensembles, orchestras, producers, recording companies, broadcasters, festivals and other parties to propose the writing of a work that will be guaranteed multiple exposures by way of performances, recordings, broadcasts or digital dissemination.
