2018 Grant McLennan Fellowship Calls For Nominations

Queensland’s Grant McLennan Fellowship is calling for nominations for 2018 grants.

The Grant McLennan Fellowship was founded in 2007 in the name of Go-Betweens co-founder Grant McLennan, who died from a heart attack at age 49 in May, 2006.

The Grant McLennan Fellowship allows recipients to travel to New York, London or Berlin for up to six months to experience the foreign music culture Grant himself was absorbed and inspired by.

2017 recipient Jeremy Neale says, “I’m only at the beginning of my journey here but have so far completed a two week songwriting intensive at NYU that has done wonders for my own writing and also made me comfortable with co-writing – which is something that I had avoided for most of my career but am now engaging in wherever possible,” says Neale.

Applications open on Friday 20 July for individual songwriters and songwriting duos.
You must:
• Reside in Queensland and be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
• Be 21 years of age or older
• Be a member of APRA AMCOS
• Have satisfied the reporting requirements of any previous Arts Queensland grants
• Have an ABN
• Only submit one application in each round (e.g. songwriting duos may not also submit individual applications).

Applications close on 17 September, with the winners to be announced in December 2018.

Head to www.qmusic.com.au for full eligibility requirements and guidelines.
