The Sponsorship program allows FACTOR to support worthy music-related 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.
FACTOR generally funds music festivals and conferences but the Sponsorship program is flexible as long as the project shows some benefit to the artists involved – the more career-focused the benefits and results, the better.
Regardless of when you apply, your event will be assessed against other applications whose events fall into the same date range.
