Oram Awards 2018, recognising female musical innovators

Posted on: Wednesday 20th of June 2018

Oram-Awards-2018The Oram Awards, recognising female musical innovators, will return for a second year next month. The inaugural event having taken place at Margate’s Turner Contemporary Gallery last year, this year it will be staged at the Jodrell Bank telescope as part of the Bluedot Festival. Two main winners will receive development bursaries of £1500 each, while a further four will receive £500 each.

Named after Daphne Oram, one of the founding members of the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop, the awards hope to build on her legacy. Oram worked at the workshop with others including Delia Derbyshire, Glynis Jones, Jenyth Worsley, Maddalena Fagandini and Elizabeth Parker, creating early electronic music, sound effects and more for a variety of television and radio shows. The Oram Awards set out to recognise the important work of other women music-makers, whose voices may go unheard in the wider musical landscape.

 

Daphne-OramThe awards ceremony will take place on Friday 20th July at the Jodrell Bank, Cheshire, United Kingdom Telescope as part of Bluedot Festival and will be presented by BBC Radio 3 and BBC 6 Music’s Elizabeth Alker.

PRS Foundation boss Vanessa Reed adds: “We’re delighted to be celebrating the second Oram Awards at Bluedot Festival this year with Matthew Herbert and the New BBC Radiophonic Workshop. There are many talented and exciting female music and sound innovators in the UK and the Oram Awards is a brilliant way of recognising and supporting their work and promoting role models for the next generation. I’m looking forward to seeing who will be shortlisted and the impact our talent development bursaries will have on their next steps”.
