£50,000 on offer to make new music

The UK's biggest and most exciting music prize is back with £50,000 on
offer to make new music

PRS for Music Foundation's New Music Award recognises and celebrates
leading innovators in the UK. It provides investment, support and
profile for exceptional and pioneering music creators. Allowing total
creative freedom, the Award is open to absolutely anyone working in any
genre and artistic context.

It is an opportunity for anyone to come up with a ground breaking idea
for a new work, which, if chosen, will be given a £50,000 prize towards
its creation and performance. A panel of 6 judges will select the most
exciting idea from a shortlist, which will be awarded the prize in
September 2010.
