Emerging Excellence Awards Round 5: Applications now open!

Round five of the Emerging Excellence Awards is here and we’re on the lookout for talented artists who need funding for creative projects.

The final acts chosen will receive a grant of up to £3000 - previously used by artists to help with touring & recording costs, residencies & mentoring courses, promotion & marketing, and other special projects that help get careers moving.

We’ve given grants to some incredible artists since the awards began in 2012 – including United Vibrations, Nordic Giants, Gibb & Lucas, Labyrinth Ear, Douglas Dare, Clare Hammond and many, many more. We’re proud of every artist we’ve supported, and you can check them all out here. In fact, you can even read our latest blog from PORTS, who received one of our awards earlier this year.

You can head here for more info - including guidelines, FAQs and details on how to apply. 

Applications need to be with us by Thursday 12 June 2014 at 5pm.

Also, feel free to spread the word over on facebook & twitter, using the hashtag #emergingexcellenceawards.

Fancy some visual encouragement after all this talk?

Check out this video; it features some of our Emerging Excellence artists performing at Proud Galleries for our showcase last year – run in association with Platform 33.
