Level Up Grants - 2020

2020

If you’re an Aussie artist wanting to take your career to the next level, we’ve got some massive news for you.
 
Introducing triple j Unearthed’s Level Up Grants. As part of ABC’s Fresh Start Fund,  we’re offering fifteen different financial grants to help you level up your music career. The ABC’s Fresh Start Fund provides urgent and critical support to independent Australian producers and safeguards local content and creativity in response to the unprecedented impact of COVID-19.
 
There will be five grants offered to one artist from each of the following categories:
  • Bands (indie/rock/roots/folk)
  • Solo (indie/pop/singer songwriter)
  • Hip hop (rap and R&B)
  • Producers/Dance/Electronic artists
  • Heavy artists (metal/hardcore/punk)
 
Two grants are on offer for two different Indigenous artists.
 
There are eight grants for regional artists. One grant will be awarded to an artist from each state and territory.
 
The grants must be spent on things that will level up your music career, especially in regards to your next single, and can include:
  • Musical instruments
  • Home studio recording equipment
  • Home studio recording software
  • Recording studio hire
  • Mixing and mastering costs
  • Rehearsal room hire
  • Session performer fees
  • Music video production

If you're successful in your application for one of the above grants, you'll need to confirm that the next single will be uploaded to triple j Unearthed and that Unearthed will have the exclusive rights to premiere that single.

To be eligible for a Level Up grant, you must have at least one song uploaded to triple j Unearthed and you’ll also need to fill out the application form which you can access here. Don’t forget to check the T&Cs for all the extra details and to make sure you’re giving yourself the best shot with your application.
