Please note: any artist that is new to the fund or is re-establishing sales eligibility must receive written approval of sales eligibility from Jerry Leibowitz no later than 2 weeks before the deadline for any round. That means that all proof of eligibility for artists must be provided significantly in advance of two weeks before the deadline so that all the material can be reviewed and further information provided if necessary before that two week advance period elapses. For further details, please review FAQ #1.
We have increased the number of Canadian live appearances we will consider funding from 25 to 30 per year. The subsidy amount available for each Canadian live appearance will stay at $1,500. We have increased the subsidy amount for non-Canadian live appearances to $2,500 in all international territories.
