MakingTracks funding decisions for July 2012
NZ On Air will fund 24 new music projects from its July Making Tracks funding round.
The 24 projects were selected from a field of 103 applications.
Twelve are $10,000 grants for recording a song and making a music video to back up the release of the song and 12 are $6,000 grants for making a music video only.
This means NZ On Air has funded 345 projects since the Making Tracks scheme was launched in July last year (from 1,319 applications).
Decisions are based on the broadcast, music and audience merits of the songs that have been submitted. An independent panel of broadcasting and music professionals makes the recommendations.
