If you make music then listen up because the PPCA is once again teaming up with Australia Council to deliver another round of artist recording grants.

This will be the fifth round of the program, with five $15,000 grants awarded to upcoming Australian artists to assist in recording costs.

“We are really pleased to be able to offer these grants and contribute to the range and diversity of Australian music,” PPCA Chief Executive Officer Dan Rosen said.

“The applications last year were incredibly strong and a great indication of the quality and depth of our local recording artists.”

Previous recipients have included Courtney Barnett, who used the grant to record her iconic album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, All Out Exes Live In Texas and Mia Dyson.

Applications are open now and will close on 7 March; for more information head over to the Australian Council website.
