 JEROME FUND FOR NEW MUSIC, 2017
Summary:Funding Opportunity
Deadline: 21 August 2017
Date Posted: 26 April 2017
Details: JFUND for New Music
JEROME FUND FOR NEW MUSIC, 2017

DEADLINE: Monday, August 21, 2017 4:30 PM (Central)

The American Composers Forum (ACF) champions composers and other creative musicmakers, and boosts their careers with professional opportunities. Our Jerome Fund for New Music (Jfund) supports the creation, presentation, and subsequent life of a new work. About 10 grants are available: up to $7,000 for the composer or primary artist’s time to create the work, and up to $1,500 to help make it happen and further its potential.

Jfund welcomes applicants from the whole range of musical paths and is committed to supporting a diverse pool of artists.

The American Composers Forum encourages applicants from the full range of musical styles, and is committed to supporting a diverse pool of artists whose work demonstrates strong artistic merit. Accordingly, awards for our programs will represent, as far as possible, artists and projects that are diverse in genre, gender, race, ethnicity and geography.

The primary artist (not limited to those who self-identify as a “composer” but eligible to all kinds of artists who create original music such as improvisers) applies with a third party (such as a performing group or a presenter who commits to producing the finished work). The primary artist needs to be at an “emerging” level in her/his career: neither a student (except in certain circumstances) nor an established professional. The proposed project should be a significant artistic and professional leap: a risky but logical next step that will mark a new level of accomplishment. The Jerome Foundation’s definition of an emerging artist can be found here: https://www.jeromefdn.org/apply/composer-soundartist/definition-emerging....
Awards – judged by a panel of artists – are competitive and based on outstanding quality of work, personal musical voice, and exceptional potential to make a career difference. Since its founding in 1979 the program, funded by the Jerome Foundation, has made hundreds of awards and helped launch many careers.

ELIGIBILITY
• Open to emerging artists who are just starting out in their career, under-recognized, with no national reputation, few professional accolades, and no more than a handful of paid commissions.
• Primary artist (creator of original music) must reside in Minnesota or the five boroughs of New York City at the time of application. Project partners may be based anywhere in the world.
• Applicants (primary or partners) may only be a part of one application.
• Previous winners of JFund (formerly JCCP) awards may apply as long as they were more than two years ago and final reports have been submitted.
· The composer applicant can’t be a current recipient of a Jerome Foundation Composer/Sound Artist Fellowship. A composer or sound artist may not receive a fellowship and other Jerome Foundation support for the same work(s).
• Students may apply if their samples and proposal are beyond the scope of accredited course work.
• Projects may take place in a worship setting but not be premiered during a religious service.
• JFund administrative staff members are ineligible.
• ACF membership is not required for JFund applicants, but is strongly encouraged in order to keep informed about future opportunities.
• Proposed works should be at an early stage in their development, and must not be finished by the time of application. Works must be scheduled to premiere after December 31, 2017. Supported projects must be completed within five years of the award date.

SELECTION CRITERIA

• Quality of musical materials, showing singular artistic voice and vision.
• Significance of the project to the primary artist’s career.
• Well articulated compositional planning and overall thoroughness of project.
• Level of commitment by project partners to performing, presenting and furthering the work.
• Relevance of the Enhancement Funds to deepen the work and further the artist’s career.
• The final pool will reflect a range of artists and projects, diverse in genre, gender, and racial origin.

SELECTION PROCESS

ACF staff reviews all applications for eligibility and completeness. A diverse panel of artists familiar with a range of contemporary music will have access to all materials submitted. Each applicant’s complete recordings are listened to by at least one panelist. Panelists convene in St. Paul to make final determinations. Panelists remain anonymous until after the results are announced in late November.
