The Music Export Growth Scheme is designed to make available grants ranging from £5,000 – £50,000 to UK-registered independent music companies to assist them with marketing campaigns when looking to introduce successful UK music projects overseas.

Applicants must complete the application form online and submit it on or before the deadline. Word limits must be respected. Additional attachments are limited to a biography only.

Applications will be reviewed by the BPI and DIT and those successfully shortlisted will be considered by a panel of music industry experts, chaired by John Kennedy OBE. The panel will draw on the marketing expertise of a number of organisations including the Music Managers Forum (MMF), The Featured Artists Coalition (FAC) and the Association of Independent Music (AIM) as well as representatives of independent record labels and BPI.

You are eligible to apply if you are a UK-based music company with a turnover of less than €50 million and fewer than 250 employees, as per the EU definition of an SME (Small to Medium Enterprise).

A company will not be able to receive more than two grants per year and will not be able to access more than €200,000 in any three-year period, as per EU State Aid rules.
