I hope you are all keeping well and have managed to get through the past few months. We are mailing you to let you know about an opportunity to be part of Postcards From Scotland II. Last summer we teamed up with several world-wide festivals and streamed postcards from Scotland into the homes of audiences around the globe. It was immensely successful and this year we are launching Postcards from Scotland II.
Working with some of the largest festivals around the globe including Interceltique de Lorient, The Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Heb Celt, Towersey Folk Festival and many more, the film will be streamed as part of online festivals as well as be shown to live audiences on screens. Artists will be paid £100 per musician (the recommended MU rate for streaming) and a donation button will also be available for audiences to donate funds. Some of the festivals already mentioned have committed several thousand pounds to be split amongst participating musicians. Importantly though, the main objective of Postcards is to ensure Scottish artists remain prominent on the international stage.
Each festival director will be on the panel who select a final 12 who will participate. This means that you will ALL be seen by those festival directors, so it is in-fact a showcase.
A copy of the National Arts Centre of Canada version of postcards is available to watch if you want some inspiration. Just click on the watch video button below.
And you can find the link to the application form below. The deadline to apply is June 1, so there’s only a couple of weeks to get this in.
As ever we are here to help, so if any of you want advice or just a chin wag then don’t worry about picking up the phone or emailing.
