Point Blank x Resident Advisor Present: Young Producers Scholarship – Apply Now!

We’re excited to announce that we have again teamed up with the renowned Resident Advisor to launch a new scholarship programme, the Young Producers Scholarship. This scholarship initiative was created to help passionate musicians who may not have the opportunities or funding to reach the heights that they are capable of. The recipient of our collaborative programme with RA will be awarded a full scholarship to the CertHE Music Production & DJ Practice course worth over £9,000 at our HQ in the heart of London’s creative hub, Shoreditch, reaping the benefits of the peerless status that these two institutions carry in the world of dance music and work alongside those who have been there and done it, themselves.

This 9-month course is one of our most popular and intensive available, featuring modules such as Intro to Music Production, DJ Skills, Music Composition, Sound Design, Art of Mixing, Music Industry and more, making it perfect for anyone looking to kickstart their career in the music business. Show us your outstanding talent and your will to work and PB & RA can take you as far as you want to go.

Last year’s winner, Tailor Jae, has since gone on to play alongside the likes of Kurupt FM, Spooky and more. She’s guested on Rinse FM as well as Keep Hush UK alongside Conducta and the Kiwi Rekords crew and most recently released a new track, ‘Thief‘ on L U C Y’s imprint, SZNS7N, which she made in collaboration with PB students Traces at our Orsman Road studios.

How to Apply

Applying for our Young Producers Scholarship is simple:

  • Complete our CertHE application form, stating in the form that you want to be considered for the RA Scholarship scheme, by November 15. The written application should include highlights of your relevant musical experience to date in the form of a CV and/or cover letter, including your artist social media profiles (eg. Soundcloud, Facebook, Instagram, Mixcloud), showcasing your strongest music and/or mix. (Please note we will only be accepting applicants who are UK/EU applicants).
  • Point Blank and RA Representatives will assess all applications after the deadline on November 15.
  • Once all of the applicants have been assessed a shortlist will be created from which the final winner will be picked, contacted and officially announced.

The selection process will be carried out by both Resident Advisor and Point Blank. Successful applicants will be notified by December 16, 2019. Unfortunately, we cannot reply to every applicant so, if you have not heard from us by December 15, please consider your scholarship application unsuccessful.
