Girls I Rate, PRS For Music & PRS Foundation launch #GETHEARD
07 April 2021
An official press release states that the #GETHEARD competition will give aspiring women songwriters the opportunity to have their music broadcast and funded for the very first time.
Created in collaboration with Girls I Rate founder Carla-Marie Williams to champion aspiring songwriters and producers, the Future Hitmaker Award is powered by PRS Foundation’s Hitmaker Fund and supported by Spotify.
All those who submit their music are also invited to attend a free masterclass on navigating the music business hosted by Claire Rose, outreach manager, PRS For Music, and Becci Scotcher, senior grants and programmes manager, PRS Foundation, who will share advice on how music creators can make money from their music and the various funding and grants available to them.
The #GETHEARD Future Hitmaker Competition will culminate in a live virtual event on Sunday June 27, where 10 shortlisted tracks will be played and listened to by some of the most influential A&Rs in the music industry. The group will provide their expert opinions, advice to those on the shortlist, and select the three recipients of the Future Hitmaker Award, who will receive £1,000, £2,000 and £3,000 respectively, towards career development.
To apply to the #GETHEARD Future Hitmaker Competition for the chance to have tracks listened to by the expert A&R panel, applicants must submit songs via this link by 31 May 2021.
