AMRAP funding for Music Correspondents and Music Recordings

The Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (AMRAP) has announced new funding for community stations and individual broadcasters to produce short program content that highlights Australian music for satellite and web distribution.

The latest funding round follows on from the success of the inaugural AMRAP
Music Correspondents scheme, which was launched in January 2004. This
generated a huge amount of interest around the national community radio
sector and resulted in ten talented broadcasters from around Australia being
selected to participate.

Radio packages produced by AMRAP’s augural Music
Correspondents were broadcast widely around the national sector, and can
still be heard online at

Funding is now available for Music Correspondents and Live Music Recordings.

Experienced community radio broadcasters can be paid to produce radio packages about new Australian music. Sponsor stations will also receive payment in exchange for providing resources for Music Correspondents.

Live Music Recordings

Community stations can be paid to produce edited radio packages of live
music performances.

CBOnline data research indicates that in an average week, community stations
across the country record more than 400 hours of Australian music. The Live
Music Recordings category is intended to support editing and re-packaging of
live music recordings that would be of interest to a national audience.

Applications close Monday 13 September 2004.
