FACTOR - SPONSORSHIP
The Sponsorship program allows FACTOR to support worthy music-related projects and events that are looking for a smaller amount of support, or that do not quite fit other program mandates. New and genre-specific music festivals, broadcaster conferences, workshops, industry association events, and international showcases are examples of projects that FACTOR has been proud to support over the years. Extra consideration may be given to projects and events that largely benefit underserved communities, audiences and genres. These may include (for example) Northern, remote and rural communities; Indigenous peoples and Indigenous artists; Black artists and Artists of Colour; artists identifying as LGBTQ2A.
Any Canadian person, company or organization with an appropriate project is eligible to apply. An Applicant Profile is not required.
SOCAN AWARDS FOR YOUNG COMPOSERS
Four prizes will be offered in each of five categories: 1st prize — $3,000; 2nd prize — $2,000; 3rd prize — $1,500; Young Composer Prize — $1,500 (21 years of age and younger). The John Weinzweig Grand Prize of $3,000 for the best overall work may also be awarded.
Entries submitted will be examined by a jury of prominent composers selected by the SOCAN Foundation. Excellence will be an overriding factor in adjudication.
The jury may, but need not, award all prizes in each category. The jury reserves the right, where deemed beneficial to the entry, to move an entry to another category. The jury’s decisions are final
