More money for jazz clubs!
While our other funding schemes are geared towards jazz musicians and artists, the aim of the Jazz Services/PRS Jazz Promoters Awards is to encourage small-scale promoters of new British jazz music, presenting material that is fresh, exciting and helps invigorate the UK’s jazz music scene.
The awards are made by the PRS for Music Foundation in collaboration with, and administered by the main UK Jazz Organisation, Jazz Services, and over the years have offered financial support to a great number of UK promoters, resulting in some fantastic live music opportunities for artists and audiences alike.
Who can apply?
The awards are open to anyone promoting live jazz music and are divided into two categories - the regular promoters award for established promoters, and the fledgling promoters award for those just starting out.
Award winners are selected from the applications by a joint panel whose members are drawn from PRS for Music Foundation, Jazz Services and Serious, as well as including established musicians. The panel look for programmes of events which feature a majority of music by living British jazz composers and performers.
