Welcome to the Radio Starmaker Fund.

The deadline for applications being submitted is 5:00 PM EDT, Thursday, May 21, 2015. The Board of Directors will meet in June 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.

New Details for Round 55:

  • Streamed tracks – the RSF will now allow Canadian streams of songs, as indicated by Soundscan Canada, to go toward meeting our net sales thresholds. 750 streams of individual tracks from the same album released within 5 years of the deadline for the round will be counted as one full album sale when applying to Starmaker.

    We have added a spot next to where you include your Canadian ship, scan and digital download numbers called Streamed Tracks. Please include in this area the total number of streamed tracks from the Canadian release of the album for which you are applying as indicated by Soundscan Canada. This must be for actual tracks on the album – not remixes or alternate versions. If you do not have this information, it can be left at 0.

  • Digitally downloaded tracks - we will once again allow digital track sales to go back 5 years. When entering digital track sales information for your current release, please include those sales going back 5 years from the deadline for the round. Again, this must be for actual tracks on the album – not remixes or alternate versions.

  • – the Canadian Broadcast Museum Foundation has been building a National Broadcast Collection for the last several years. Rather than build a conventional bricks and mortar institution, the Foundation is creating a unique virtual presence that will celebrate decades of programs and the people behind them, as well as the remarkable industrial and technological achievements that have combined to build this country’s radio and television services. Planning and design of the virtual museum, its many galleries and interactive elements, has begun. Meanwhile, the important activity of finding, cataloguing and preserving all kinds of relics of our broadcasting past continues. As you all know, Canada’s private broadcasters are an important partner in the Radio Starmaker Fund and we encourage you to get involved and support AIREUM. Please visit for further details.
