Open to Victorian music artist managers and independent labels, the Fast Track Fellowship supports selected participants to undertake overseas residencies and immerse themselves within international music companies over a two-month period.

Applications are now open for the Victorian Government-backed program which is being delivered by the new Victorian Music Development Office (VMDO), in partnership with the Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR) and Association of Artist Managers (AAM).

The Fast Track Fellowship program includes return flights, visas and insurance as well as financial support for accommodation, on ground logistics, per diems and registration fees for professional industry events.

In 2019, two Fast Track Fellowships will be selected by an independent industry-based advisory panel that includes representatives from VMDO, AIR, AAM and the recipients from the inaugural 2018 Fast Track Fellowship, music managers: Charlotte Abroms (Hear Hear Music) and Guy Blackman (Chapter Music); and label managers: Tom Fraser (Pieater) and Amy Chapman (Wantok Musik).

Fast Track Fellowships are part of the Victorian Government’s $22.2 million Music Works initiative.

Applications are now open via the VMDO

Applications close Thursday, 6 December 2018
