Mentorships for Women in Music (Applications Close) [National]

April 16 @ 5:00 pm EST

APRA Mentorships For Women 2020

After two fruitful years of our mentoring program for women, APRA are pleased to announce the return of Mentorships for Women In Music, with nine new mentoring opportunities for songwriters and composers available across a variety of genres and disciplines.

Applications are now open for the following mentorships:

  • Popular/Contemporary Music, in partnership with APRA AMCOS
  • Film Composition, in partnership with the AGSC
  • TV Composition with Jay Stewart

Amongst the roster of mentors include Music Industry Inside Out veterans Gregg Donovan, L-Fresh The Lion and Kate Miller-Heidke.

Women at any stage in their career are invited to apply. Whether you are starting out, returning to the industry or looking for advice on moving to the next level, you will be seriously considered for the program.

Who can apply?
Songwriters and composers who identify as women, and gender minorities who feel they would benefit from a program designed for women in music. You must be an APRA AMCOS member to apply. Read about the 2018 and 2019 mentees.

Why is mentoring important?
In 2017, APRA AMCOS released research that identified the pathways and barriers for women working in music. This has led to their commitment to provide support to women through the development of programs to effect immediate and sustainable gender participation and equitable financial success for female songwriter and composer members. The mentorship program is a key component of their commitment.

Each mentorship is offered for a three month period and mentees will receive some financial support over that time. The suggested timeframe is July – September 2020, however timings can be negotiated between mentor and mentee depending on availability

Applications close Thursday 16 April, at 5PM AEST. Full details on APRA’s website.
