The “2018 Subsidy Programme for the Production of Original Song Albums” aims to cultivate more talented musicians, producers and music creators in Macao. By giving support to the production and promotion of the original song albums, IC hopes to encourage musicians to produce and release more outstanding works and lay the groundwork for market development. With the aim of fostering the local music industry, several promotional activities will be held for the beneficiaries, so as to provide more performance opportunities, publicize the Programme’s accomplishments and increase the public’s understanding of the local music industry. Each selected album will be granted a subsidy of up to MOP 150,000 as well as the opinions and given professional advice from the members of the jury. The subsidy will be given to a maximum of eight beneficiaries.
