UK charity Help Musicians is inviting applications for its prestigious Peter Whittingham Jazz Award, which offers financial support and business advice for jazz musicians or bands ‘at a tipping point’ in their careers.

The award scheme is now in its 32nd year. Previous winners include Soweto Kinch, Errollyn Wallen, Xhosa Cole and Roller Trio.

One musician will receive £5,000 in financial support that can be used to fund a range of activities including recording, filming, touring and mentoring, as well as one-to-one business advice tailored to their needs and delivered via experienced music industry professionals.

An additional £5,000 is distributed between two Development Awards for musicians who demonstrate the potential to make an impact in the jazz scene.


To find out more and receive tips on writing a great application, sign up to one of Help Musicians’ Get Set sessions happening throughout September. 

Applications close at 9am on Monday 17 October 2022.
