Levi’s Music Prize, the largest music prize in Australia, is now inviting Kiwi musicians to apply for a stake in the annual A$100K prize pool.
Any New Zealand artists that have played Bigsound dating back to 2014 can apply. The quarterly $25,000 prize provides funding towards recording or touring equipment, video production, touring and promotion, or a new album or EP, supporting artists that have built significant initial career momentum via their Bigsound experience, but who need a financial leg-up to keep moving forward on the international stage.
Applications are now open for Round 2, 2018/19 and will close December 9, 2018, with the winner announced in January.
Following that there are two remaining rounds for the financial year:
Applications open December 10, 2018 and close March 10, 2019.
Winner announced April 2019.
Applications open March 11 and close June 11.
Winner announced July 2019.
