Fund description:

In 2010, PRS for Music Foundation launched a unique funding opportunity which invited women music creators to apply for our support.

The third year of Women Make Music comes after hugely successful projects took place in 2011 and 2012.

Financial support of up to £5000 is available, and new music in any genre is welcome, from classical, jazz and experimental, to urban, electronica and pop.

Please note that music creators supported through Women Make Music during 2011 and 2012 are not eligible to apply for funding from this scheme in 2013. The application is a two stage process and only those with successful first stage applications will be asked to continue on to the second stage.
