Toto Award for Music 2018: Call for Applications

TOTO AWARDS 2018
MUSIC
CALL FOR ENTRIES

TOTO FUNDS THE ARTS (TFA) invites entries for its fourteenth TOTO Music Award from young musicians and bands. The winner, to be decided by an eminent panel, will receive a cash award of Rs 60,000.

Entries should reach TFA by 20th August 2017. 

Contemporary original music from all parts of India, in any genre and language, is welcome. In the past TFA has received entries in genres ranging from rock, jazz, heavy metal and electronic to instrumental and folk. Although it is never easy to compare diverse entries, our experience is that talent and potential have a way of standing out regardless. TFA tends to reward music that explores new territory in the Indian music scene in the hope that the recognition and the cash award can help sustain it. The selected jury comprises individuals with experience as well as an open ear for new sounds.

Only Indian nationals resident in India are eligible for the award. (Overseas Citizen of India card-holders are not eligible.) Since the spirit of the award is to identify and encourage young talent, you can apply if you (and all band members if any) were born on or after 1 January 1988.

Over the past thirteen years, the Toto Music Award has come to be coveted by young musicians because it recognizes excellence. It helps you to see where you stand among the best upcoming musicians in the country, and to get your music heard and appreciated by veterans in the field. The jury will assess musical content as well as the potential of the artist/band. Professional recording quality is not a requirement but applicants are encouraged to make their tracks sound as good as possible.

How To Apply for the Toto Music Award

The application process is fully online.
