SAMRO calls for applications for the Music Creation Support Fund 2022

About the Opportunity:

The Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) is excited to announce that full and associate SAMRO members can now apply for the 2022 Music Creation Support Fund (MCSF). This year, SAMRO has put aside R2.5 million for the MCSF to offer 100 SAMRO members the opportunity to apply for a supporting micro-grant of up to R25 000. The grant is to be used to contribute towards the creation of new and original music works.

The 100 grants, selected by an independent adjudication committee, were spread across 25 genres, the top six being Soul, House, Afro-pop, and SA Jazz, with Gospel and marginalised indigenous genres sharing 6th place with 22% each. The grantees represented a wide variety of musicians of different races, and genres, closely reflecting SAMRO’s demographics.
