Arts Council England have made grants available to artists, songwriters and producers for the LA Sync Mission Showcase and Sync Song-writing Camp in June 2018. Applications are open until 21st March 2018.
The annual LA Sync Mission, hosted jointly by DIT, BPI & MPA, enables record label and music publishing executives, songwriters, composers, artists and managers to benefit from a unique insight into the operation of the lucrative sync licensing market in the US. The mission also provides a priceless opportunity to meet with many of the key players and decision makers from the world of sync working across the TV, film, advertising and games markets in the media capital of the US – the world’s largest entertainment market.
Following a successful first year, the Sync Song Writing Camp returns in 2018, running from the 16th – 19th of June, allowing both UK and US songwriters and producers to collaborate on sync briefs.
