Steve Reid Innovation Award



Who can apply?

The competition is open to any unsigned and unmanaged artists currently writing and producing original music. The foundation is particularly looking for innovators who push the boundaries with their music, and applicants are encouraged to embrace a wide range of styles and rhythms without being limited to a single genre.

How do I apply?

Artists hoping to apply for this unique creative development award will need to provide links to their music, alongside a three-minute long video in which they talk about their career so far and how they would benefit from funding and mentoring. Artists must also sign up for an online PRS account in order to begin the application process.

The deadline for entries is 30th June 2016 and successful applicants will be contacted in December. CLICK HERE to find out more and begin your application.


Good luck from everyone at Ditto Music!
