OnlyFans platform has announced the launch of its first prize fund to sponsor emerging artists. It aims to boost the creative industry, starting with UK-based musicians.
The £80,000 fund will be split between four artists with grants of £20,000. The winning applicants will be chosen by UK rapper Stefflon Don, OnlyFans CEO Tim Stokely, designer Henry Holland and Assassination Nation actress Suki Waterhouse.
Given the current situation where concerts have been sidelined, Stefflon Don said, “Music is an industry you have to work incredibly hard at anyway and with live gigs off the table it’s been tougher than ever.” She added “My hope is this gives musicians inspiration or a channel to earn a wage. For the winners who will get the grant, I’m excited to see their possibilities in the industry and see the entries.”
If you’re reading this from the UK and would like to apply for the prize, you can enter here. All you need to do is upload a 90-second video of you performing one of your songs. The closing date for entries is 13 April.
