International Music Fellow: A New Programme of the IMC
The International Music Council (IMC) has announced the establishment of a new recognition programme: the International Music Fellow. This programme is designed to honour deserving individuals whilst at the same time supporting the efforts of the International Music Council through a donation. Candidates may be nominated by any individual, group of individuals, organisation, NGO, public authority or private company, which contribute EUR 1,000 or more to the IMC in the name of their candidate.
Guidelines for the nomination as well as the nomination form are available on the IMC website at www.imc-cim.org/component/content/article/140-programmes/540-imc-international-music-fellow-programme.html. The form requests biographical information as well as a statement regarding the nominee's commitment to the IMC's Five Musical Rights. Nominations will be reviewed by the IMC Directorate in consultation with IMC Regional Music Councils. Once a positive decision has been reached, the nominees will be notified of the honour conferred upon them by the donor(s) and the IMC. The new International Music Fellows will be recognized at the IMC World Forum on Music, which is held biennially at different locations around the world. On this occasion, Fellows will receive an International Music Fellow certificate and an honorary pin.
Nominations for the recognition at the 5th World Forum on Music in Brisbane, Australia, on 21-24 November 2013 should be received on or before 15 August 2013.
