Our music mission is to get more New Zealand music played on the radio, on television and online. We fund songs and videos for broadcast and we help to promote them.
We make grants of up to $10,000 — that's $4,000 to record a song and $6,000 towards making a music video. We call it Making Tracks.
Got a great song you think has great potential? Find out how to apply for music funding.
When we’ve funded a great song, our next job is to help put it in front of an audience.
NewTracks: we promote songs to radio stations so they'll play them.
Music programmes: we fund a number of programmes on radio and TV that showcase New Zealand music and artists.
NZ music online: we reach out to the audience on line.
We have advice, templates and resources to help you get your song funded and recorded, and to help you find an audience - on radio, on TV and on line.
This month we have funded 20 great new tracks to the tune of $180,000.
A new independent survey of children has found that while TV is still the dominant screen in their lives, tablets and smartphones are now a daily part of most kids lives. Youtube is now one of their main sources of content.
It's a great way to keep informed, especially if you are applying for Making Tracks funding.
