The Francis Chagrin Award is now open for applications from composers looking for quick funding to take their work to the next level.

According to the award organisers, the ‘easy application process could lead to getting awarded on average £100 for costs associated with composing’.

Richard Whitelaw, Sound and Music’s head of programmes, said: ‘Sound and Music is committed to supporting the extraordinary range of practices that make up new music in the UK, and this new award aims to provide regular support towards the costs associated with the making of work.

‘Whatever style you are working in, whatever background you are from, if you are struggling with the costs of composing a new work, I would urge you to consider an application.’
