Welcome to the Radio Starmaker Fund.
The deadline for applications being submitted is 5:00 PM EST, Thursday, February 10, 2022. The Board of Directors will meet in March to make final decisions regarding funding for this quarterly round. Please sign up if you would like to receive our quarterly email blasts which advise you when the new round is open to accept applications, as well as on policy and program changes.
The website for the Radio Starmaker Fund is now back on-line and ready to accept applications.
The Orion Program
The Orion Program is open this round for submissions for the February deadline. As previously outlined, the program will be open to accept applications twice a year – for the February and August deadlines. See the Orion Program section of our website to get more details on the program and to apply.
As a result of budget constraints and changing market forces, the Radio Starmaker Fund is going to discontinue the domestic marketing program in its current form effective June 30th, 2022. This means there will be two remaining rounds in which you may apply for new domestic marketing initiatives – Round 82 (with the February 10th, 2022 deadline) and Round 83 (with the May 19th, 2022 deadline). These rounds will be managed in the normal course and provide you with 8 months to complete your spending. Stay tuned later in the year for more information on our redesign and reshaping of domestic marketing support.
Previously Approved Domestic Touring Dates
Given the on-going restrictions in Canada around gathering in-person and many venues moving to smaller capacities, any previously approved domestic tour dates will be paid out in full. There will be no need to provide any paperwork for these dates.
