Dear Aussie music industry creatives, here’s your chance to score a share in a massive $25K prize pool thanks to the good folks at UNIFIED who want to give your career the cash injection it so rightfully deserves.
The UNIFIED grant is back ON for the second year running, offering five young hotshots $5K a pop to go towards chasing their artistic dreams.
And you don’t need to play an instrument to be eligible, in fact playing an instrument probably won’t help you too much at all.
This particular scheme is aimed at anyone with “inspired ideas behind the scenes of the music industry”, including photographers, producers, videographers, web developers, graphic designers, journalists, app builders, data analysts and “all the other disciplines that haven’t yet come into focus” (here’s who took out last year’s comp if you need more inspo).
To apply, all you gotta do is fill out a questionnaire and come up with a 500-word statement explaining why your work kicks everyone else’s in the dick, and what you’ll spend the money on should you be crowned the winner.
All applications will be reviewed by a dedicated panel of judges. Entries open to worldwide applicants from September 4th and close on September 30th, with the winners to be announced in November.
Break a leg, you creative guns!
