Grant for music video directors from Crack Magazine

Applicants are being offered the chance to be awarded a minimum of £12,000 budget to create a music video, and be paid London Living Wage throughout production (from pitch to delivery), which makes up around 6 to 8 weeks of work. The panel of judges includes some amazing music industry creatives, from rapper Flohio to director Oscar Hudson.
