Josh Pyke is bringing back his music industry grants program the JP Partnership for a seventh year.
$7500 will be awarded to one Australian musician. The winning artist will also be mentored by Josh Pyke, Gregg Donovan of Wonderlick Entertainment and Stephen Wade of Select Music.
“I’m really excited to announce the JP Partnership will be going ahead in ‘21 as usual. 2020 was devastating to the arts, and this year will inevitably throw some curveballs our way, but with the help of APRA AMCOS I’ll be giving an emerging artist a leg up,” said Josh Pyke. “I feel like it’s more important than ever to do what we can in the arts community to support each other in what we hope is a period of recovery for our sector. I’m looking forward to hearing some new music!”
Previous winners of the JP Partnership include Gordi, Alex Lahey and Angie McMahon.
“This prize had a huge effect on my year because it meant I could pursue the professional goals I’d set for myself,” said Angie McMahon. “The vote of confidence from Josh Pyke and APRA helped people believe in my music, which is very powerful, and I’ve been busy pursuing opportunities since receiving the prize. It felt like I’d been passed the relay baton, and then I was off and running.”
Entries open on at 9AM AEDT January 29, 2021 and will close at 5PM AEDT on 26 March, 2021. The winner will be announced 4 June, 2021.
