Help Musicians UK, the recently re-branded Musicians Benevolent Fund, is inviting applications for this year’s Peter Whittingham Award, which it administers. The main criteria for entry are that applicants should be either in the first two years of a career or on a full time jazz course, and need to have been resident in the UK for five years prior to applying. The annual prizes are worth £4,000.
There is normally a main award and a smaller development award. The deadline for applications is 7th November. The judging round is on 5th December.
