Due to the impact of the novel coronavirus pneumonia, the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC, from the Portuguese acronym) adjusted some of the application rules for the “5th Subsidy Programme for the Production of Original Song Albums” (hereinafter referred to as “the Programme”) to facilitate the evaluation and selection by professional members of the jury who reside outside Macao.
The revised content of the application rules is mainly for applicants and participants related to the application to sign a consent form which allows IC to transfer the information they submitted for the Programme to other places for evaluation purposes, and the application deadline has been extended to 15 October at 5:30pm, while all other contents remain unchanged. Interested applicants can browse and download the revised application rules and forms on IC’s website (www.icm.gov.mo) or on the Macao Cultural and Creative Industries Website (www.macaucci.gov.mo).
This year’s Programme comprises two categories: the album category and the mini album category, with each selected album being granted a subsidy of up to MOP270,000 and MOP135,000 respectively, as well as professional advice from the members of the jury. The subsidy will be given to a maximum of three and six beneficiaries for the album and mini album categories respectively. Local music creators and producers are welcome to participate. For enquiries, please contact Ms. Chong or Mr. Lo, staff members of IC, through tel. no. (853) 8399 6265 and (853) 8399 6275 during office hours.
