Application Process

Wired4Music Generate is open for applications three times a year. There are three stages to the application process, as follows:

Stage 1: One-to-one surgery

These take place either in person or over the phone, they are an opportunity to get feedback on your idea and see if it would be suitable for the programme.

We will discuss the following:

  • What your idea is
  • Who the project is for
  • How much it will cost and what will need to be paid for?
  • Any thing you can get for free to help make the project happen
  • Any partners or other people involved
  • Estimated timeline

Please note, you will not be able to apply without having a surgery, and final surgeries happen the week before the application closing date. Please see application pack below for dates.

Stage 2: APPLICATION

Once you have had your surgery, you will submit a budget with either a written or a video application and answer the questions outlined in the application pack.

Stage 3: PITCH TO YOUR PEERS

Shortlisted applicants will pitch their project to a group of their peers and give each other feedback (Dragon’s Den style).There will be an opportunity to ask your peers questions and find out more other projects. You will talk the group through your idea and, where necessary, present a revised budget.
