Applications now open for 6th round of Music Export Growth Scheme funding

Applications are now invited for the 6th round of Music Export Growth Scheme (MEGS) funding.

The scheme will support independent labels as they seek to catapult artists that are export-ready into overseas markets and has already prompted huge interest from within the independent music community since it was announced.

Over 50% of the artists and UK music companies that have sevured MEGS funding since the scheme was launched have been AIM members.

The Music Export Growth Scheme, funded by UKTI, will make available grants ranging from £5,000 to 50,000 to independent music companies to help them market British music overseas. The scheme is primarily targeted at artists who have achieved reasonable levels of success in the UK but are now looking to break through internationally.

Application Forms are now available from AIM’s websitewww.musicindie.com/MEGS.  The deadline for the first wave of applications is 13th April 2015.
