The CMF provides funding to homegrown contemporary music artists and allows artists to capitalise on opportunities.

The scheme aims to ensure a diverse representation of musicians and music professionals from Aboriginal, regional, cultural and gender diverse backgrounds.

The WA artists include:

  • Callum Robertson will receive $17,690 towards the debut EP for band Bad Weather
  • Rhys Hussey will receive $30,726 for the debut album for band SUPEREGO
  • Siobhan Cotchin will receive $31,019 for a three-track EP and series of live performances. 

Last financial year (2020-21), the CMF provided funding to 42 applicants of almost $590,000 across both categories. Funding went towards the recording of music, business development, promotion, professional development and mentoring.

The CMF 15k-plus category is currently open, with applications closing on 17 February 2022. Applications to the U-15k category (grants up to $15,000) are open year-round.
