Applications will be assessed on the following criteria:

  • The viability of the proposed project
  • The quality of the work
  • The quality of the presentation and exposure plan

Applications must incorporate both the creation of the composition and subsequent exploitation of it, extending its life and reach. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate partnerships between the composer and ensembles, presenters, orchestras, producers, recording companies etc.

Life and reach of work

Applications must demonstrate a commitment to a broad exploitation of the work – via multiple live performances and/or recordings, broadcasts, digital dissemination etc. Full details of the exploitation must be included in the application.

Proposals will be viewed favourably if:

  • Any aspect maximises the opportunities to further expose the work; increase the life of the work; and deliver a return on investment (royalties) to the composer
  • The recording of the work is included in the exploitation program
  • International performance, broadcast and other exploitation avenues are included


Applications will be assessed by a panel of professionals which might include composers, performers, presenters and others with both local and international expertise in the exploitation of art music. 

The panel’s determination on the successful applicants will be final and no further correspondence relating to the panel’s selection will be entered into. No feedback will be provided.
