Popakademie students win Female Producer Prize

29. July 2023

2023 wird der Female* Producer Prize zum zweiten Mal verliehen. Der Preis wurde 2022 erfolgreich in Deutschland ins Leben gerufen, mit dem Ziel Musikproduzentinnen* aktiv zu fördern und ihnen die Sichtbarkeit zu geben, die sie verdienen, um gemeinsam die deutschsprachige Musiklandschaft besser und diverser zu gestalten. 2022 war die Popakademikerin NOVAA eine der Gewinnerinnen.

Together with Sony Music, Thomann Musikhaus, Ableton Live, NEUBAU Music Management and Musik Women*Germany, a support package was developed for the winners, consisting of production grants, vouchers for music equipment and a top-class workshop day in the Sony Music Circle Studios. The winners* will also be added to the Female Producer Register at Sony Music and NEUBAU Music Management and thus put in touch with various labels and artists. Newly added partners are Sony Publishing and the Female* Producer Collective, who will also offer coaching sessions and their broad network.
