CLOSING SOON: 15K Recording Grants

Partnering once again with the Australia Council, PPCA is offering another series of $15,000 grants to assist Australian artists with new sound recordings. Applications are now open for any individual looking for assistance with costs primarily associated with the creation of a sound recording, which may also involve costs associated with the promotion of that recording.

The successful applicants of the 2016 grants included: Martha Marlow, Barney McAll, Robbie Miller, Sophie Payten, Sean Congues and Johnny Mackay (from Children Collide) who have all used their funds to record new projects.

Dan Rosen, PPCA Chief Executive Officer said “We are really pleased to be able to offer these grants again, and contribute to the diversity of Australian music. The response to last year’s initiative was incredibly strong and a great indication of the quality of our recording artists. We look forward to working with the Australia Council again to help more local artists realise their musical ambition.”

To seek further information head to the grants website.

Applications will close on April 26.


PPCA represents thousands of Australian recording artists when their music is used in public and encourage any applicants to register with them under its Artist Direct Distribution Scheme. It’s free to register with all details available on their website or by contacting PPCA on (02) 8569 1100.
