If you are a first-time applicant to the Juried Sound Recording or Demo Program, you must submit your new Artist and/or Applicant Profile no later than one week in advance of the Program Deadline. Please see the Program Guidelines or the PDF above for these specific dates.


To apply for FACTOR funding, every applicant must have an Applicant Profile, which describes what type of Applicant you are (such as an Artist, Record Label, Event Producer, etc). You may additionally require an Artist Profile, depending on your selected Program.

The information you provide to us in your Profile(s) help us determine which Rating you will fall into, which in turn determines your eligibility for certain Programs. Please click here for more information on FACTOR's Rating System.

New Applicants to the FACTOR system will default to the General Rating (formerly Artist 1). If you are applying outside of our twice annual Profile Reviews, this may limit your ability to apply to certain programs. Please take this into consideration when reviewing our Program deadlines.

Artists have the opportunity to move into Rating 2 or 3 during the Profile Review periods. In 2015-16, these Profile Reviews will take place on:

Semi-Annual Review: August 28th 2015
Annual Review: February 26th 2016
