2019 Grant McLennan Fellowship – Applications CLOSE
The prestigious $25,000 Grant McLennan Fellowship offers the recipient/s an opportunity to travel to New York, London or Berlin for up to six months and use the experience of being immersed in a foreign and vibrant musical culture to further develop their own artistic skills.
The Fellowship is for a contemporary music songwriter or songwriting duo with both experience and exceptional talent. The artist/artists will have more than five years of professional experience and will have developed a national profile through album releases, touring and media recognition. Songwriters will need to demonstrate a very strong case for the Fellowship to be awarded early in their career. Although not limited in musical genre, the Fellowship is primarily aimed at songwriters of contemporary popular music. Please visit the event link for application guidelines.
The Grant McLennan Fellowship is delivered through a partnership with Arts Queensland, APRA AMCOS (The Australasian Performing Right Association – Australasian Mechanical Copyright-Owners Society) and QMusic. The Winner will be announced December 2019.
