This year’s K96-3 program for emerging artists is getting a slight makeover – if you’re from the BC interior, read on for this year’s details!
Emerging artists from the BC interior region can apply to win one of three recording grants of $1000, to be used at an interior-owned recording studio to record a previously unreleased song. From the 3 recordings, one winner will be selected to receive over $3500 in cash in prizes!
To apply, artists must submit a previously unreleased song that they wish to record in a professional studio. The submission may be an audio, or video recording of the song to be considered. If awarded the demo grant, the submitted song must be the song to be recorded. Additional songs may be recorded as well, depending on the agreement between the studio and artist.
Selected artists must use a studio located in the interior region (same definition as above).
Selected artists will submit a budget proposal, outlining what service provider(s) they will be using, and at what rates. If approved, the artist can select between the following payment options:
Selected artists will have approximately 6 weeks to complete the recording, at which time they will be submitted to Music BC. A panel of industry professionals will then choose one winner, who will receive the grand prize, which includes:
If/when recordings are released to the public via physical or online distribution, funding recognition must be included via Music BC and K96-3 approved logos and the statement “We recognize the support of Music BC and K96-3 in the creation of this recording”.
