Drake YolanDa Award
Drake Calleja Trust
The Drake YolanDa Award is a talent development grant which aims to financially support talented emerging artists who are creating great music, actively performing and want to pursue a career in music. 10 emerging artists will be awarded £3,000 each to support them in areas including touring, artistic development, recording new music, music videos, marketing, branding and purchasing new equipment.
This award is open to emerging artists across any genre of music (classical musicians not eligible) aged 16 – 30. You must be resident in the UK. Applicants can be singers, rappers, instrumentalists and groups. We are looking for independent artists that need support and do not currently have backing from major record labels, publishers and more. Applications are currently open and close on 30th March at 23:00pm.
