– An artist development and marketing plan that will identify short to long term goals and how to achieve them
– Professionally produced collection of songs and music videos for promotional distribution and resale
– Access to £3,000-£5,000 bursary to go toward recording and marketing budgets to help kickstart music revenue streams
– Live performances in quality venues and popular online music channels – opportunities to gain and increase current fanbase, to inspire and engage audiences, and other young talent

The artist/act will be selected by iMakeArt’s independent selection panel of music industry professionals, Young Leaders Group and iMake Foundation Trustees, following this open call out.
