Musicboard is pleased to inform you that the online application form for the first application deadline in the Label Funding programme has just been activated.
Independent labels in Berlin, providing up-and-coming Berlin pop musicians with professional development opportunities in marketing, can apply for funding until the application deadline of February 15, 2023 at 6:00 pm. While the financial support for some components of promotion and marketing helps labels operate with more flexibility, the addition of the labels’ expertise works to the artists’ benefit.
In 2023, the Label Funding programme will be awarded three times a year with deadlines on February 15, May 15, and August 15, 2023. The grants will be recommended by the five-member expert jury, which is also responsible for the Scholarships & Residencies programme. The expert jury includes Ji-Hun Kim (editor-in-chief Das Filter, freelance lecturer, DJ, music producer), Katja Lucker (Managing Director Musicboard Berlin GmbH), Thien Nguyen (label operator, DJ, music and film producer) and Pamela Owusu-Brenyah (A&R, Music Consultant and Curator Pop-Kultur Festival). Brief information about the current jury can be found here.
Please note: Since 2022, all funding applications to the Musicboard Berlin must be submitted by 6:00 p.m. on the day of the application deadline. Only fully completed applications that are submitted on time and electronically via the new application tool of Musicboard Berlin GmbH can be considered. When submitting your application, please also pay particular attention to the adapted, necessary application documents. We have collected frequently asked questions about the application process for the Label Funding programme for you here on our website.
