Artist Development & Juried Sound Recording Deadline – January 31, 2019

The next deadline to apply for the Artist Development and Juried Sound Recording programs is Thursday January 31, 2019. Submit your applications by 11:59 PM PT. Don’t wait until the last moment to start working on your applications! Now is a good time to update your bio, set your project goals, write your Artist Development plan, or prepare your Juried Sound Recording marketing plan.

If you have never applied to FACTOR before, you must first create and submit an Artist Profile and an Applicant Profile before you can create and submit your Project application. You may do this any time. To do so, complete only the Mandatory Information section of the Artist Profile. Once you have created and submitted these profiles, they will automatically receive a provisional rating that allows you to go straight to the application process. You do not have to wait for the profiles to be reviewed by FACTOR before starting your application.

NOTE: you are allowed to submit an application to one of these programs per deadline. If you submit projects to both the AD program and the JSR program, your project coordinator will have to reject one of these projects as ineligible.

Below are some useful tips to create a strong application:
