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.

New Details for Round 57:

  • You will now be able to include direct monthly or flat fee charges from your distributor should you hire them to work your project to the press and/or to radio. These initiatives will be considered as both significant investment or funding requests in our domestic marketing applications or as funding requests in our international marketing applications. These can only be accepted should you be invoiced for this work. They cannot be accepted if the fee is paid to your distributor as a percentage of sales.
  • We had previously defined a 3rd party company as a company in which you own 40% or less. Please now note that additionally, in order to be considered 3rd party, a sole proprietor or company must have at least three distinct sources of income from unaffiliated parties in a related field of work during the course of a calendar year.
  • When you indicate ticket prices for live dates, they always need to include taxes. We are looking for the ticket price the public sees advertised for any concert date for which you are applying. If there are multiple price points for the tickets, please just use an average ticket price. Kindly do not include prices of tickets for: early buyers, particular age groups or VIP/meet and greets when figuring the average ticket price.
