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

We’re delighted to announce the launch of our new Young Producers Scholarship in association with one of our favourite musical institutions: Resident Advisor. It’s something we’ve been working on for some time and we’re proud to be able to combine resources to provide what we think is a uniquely rounded route to success for the right applicant. Show us your outstanding talent and your will to work and PB & RA can take you as far as you want to go.

The successful applicant will embark on a year-long Music Production & DJ Diploma course taught in London (worth £13,995), with additional mentoring from Point Blank and Resident Advisor. Make use of the peerless status that these two bodies carry in the world of dance music, and work alongside those who have been there and done it themselves. You will have access to contacts and opportunities provided from both sides and at the end of it, should you choose, you can go straight into the second year of a Bachelors degree in a relevant field – this is accredited by Middlesex University. If the academic route isn’t for you, however, you will still benefit from the same instructor guidance, mentorship, access to facilities and industry opportunities.

If you’re a serious candidate for Young Producers Scholarship, you already know what RA is, and in that spirit, you can imagine the kind of opportunities this will present. As industry leaders ourselves, Point Blank’s added clout make this the chance of a lifetime. Get access to events, live performance slots, performances with media partners, in-studio mentoring and studio collaborations with the best in the game.

If you’re aged 18-25 then the Young producers Scholarship is open to you, commencing April or September 2018, depending on your availability. All you need to do is send the following to by 28 February 2018.

  • A written application, highlighting your relevant musical experience to date, in the form of a CV and/or cover letter.
  • Links to your artist social media profiles (eg. Soundcloud, Facebook, Mixcloud), highlighting your strongest music and/or mix.

The selection process will be carried out by both Resident Advisor and Point Blank. Successful applicants will be notified by 12th March 2018. Unfortunately, we cannot reply to every applicant so if you have not heard from us by 12th March, please consider your scholarship application unsuccessful.
