The Tiny Lies and Lawrence Arabia recieve MakingTracks funding for August 2012 round
NZ On Air will fund 24 new music projects from its August Making Tracks funding round.
The 24 projects were selected from a field of 111 applications, up slightly on the 103 applications in the July round.
Eleven are $10,000 grants for recording a song and making a music video to back up the release of the song and 13 are $6,000 grants for making a music video only.
This means that NZ On Air has funded 369 projects since the Making Tracks scheme was launched in July last year (from 1,430 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.
