MUSIC DESIGN AWARDS
The Music Design Awards recognise designers, worldwide, for the outstanding work they do for the music industry, at every level. To those in the know, designing for the music industry takes hard, hard work and real innovation - strokes of brilliance underscored with inspiration - leading to spectacular end results. Design for the music industry is unrelentingly challenging and occupies the minds of the world's most inspired, leading-edge designers and design houses. The Music Design Awards represent an opportunity for designers around the world to enter their projects for clients. The awards are truly global in context and open to designers from all regions. There are sixty-two awards to win - eleven project categories across five music genre groupings and seven continental region categories. Leading companies seeking to encourage and reward great design for the music industry support the Music Design Awards, such as Eye magazine and Art Vinyl, who have supported the Awards previously. The organisers of the Music Design Awards are keen to foster longer term relationships with partners/supporters and build enduring two-way relationships, ensuring supporters benefit from positive exposure and the Awards benefit from the credible support of companies for whom the link between design and music is important. Supporting organisations will benefit from electronic media exposure (in the form of website and editorial content), email activity, e-bulletins and e-ads on search engines. They will also gain exposure in more traditional media such as direct mail, editorial in trade titles, carefully selected display advertising and support from media partners.

KALA PHOOL
Kala Phool is an arts development agency that strives to make diverse artforms accessible, fun and low cost. Currently not core funded, Kala Phool needs financial support from like-minded organisations that want to work with it. Projects Kala Phool develops and delivers include the Brighton Hip Hop Festival, which boasts a position as the UK's largest celebration of Hip Hop culture. Kala Phool currently works globally with existing and emerging partners, as well as those from across the UK, pushing the boundaries in making all the artforms under the Hip Hop 'banner' visible. The festival was ten years old in 2013 and Kala Phool are keen to have sponsors come and support their vision - they are open to more than one supporter.     Mother India 21st Century Remix - this project is currently under development and involves the rescoring of the iconic and Oscar award winning Indian epic, Mother India. It will be produced using the talent of the world's top Turntablist, bringing the film to a fresh new audience with India and Pakistan's independence as its inspiration.     Frieze Box - imagine, a box covered in canvas in the middle of your town, school or on a roundabout, with artists working on it in rotation. This is the concept and currently Frieze Box is being developed to work with younger people, in schools and with national festivals. It's a way of taking the art to the people and allowing them to have a go. Quality is foremost in Kala Phool's visioning and the agency works with the best of the best, the most respected and credible artists ... but also in their own right they value Kala Phool's work. Kala Phool works to support under-developed artform sectors that may not necessarily have a voice. It advocates on strategic, national and international levels with a variety of agencies. "We want to hear from you". Contact: Ms Indy Hunjan. Address: PO Box 106, Brighton, East Sussex BN50 9BU. Tel.: +44 (0) 7977 449052. E-mail: indy@kalaphool.com

AOP/001 CULTURE COMPASS
Culture Compass (formerly Open Magazine is an online magazine offering a cutting edge combination of the high arts and popular culture. The ethos of the mag. is to present the arts as stylish, relevant, accessible and exciting. Its readership is bright, savvy and curious: interested in discovering new experiences; widening their knowledge. They may already be involved with the arts either as practitioners or enthusiasts. But, equally, the magazine appeals to those who may know nothing about art, or theatre or modern dance but simply be curious. Open is never preachy or judgemental: it's fun, glossy and looks at the emerging zeitgeist with humour and irreverence. It looks at the classics with fresh eyes and champions emerging talent. Features are written by journalists and experts in their field ... often by arts practitioners themselves. Editor-in-Chief Loma-Ann Bonner is a former staff journalist on various nationals and has recently been elected as a Fellow of the RSA for her work on Culture Compass. Details of sponsorship opportunities are available on request. Contact: Loma-Ann Bonner, Editor-in-Chief. Address: London-based. Tel.: 07946 476183. E-mail: editor@openmagazine.co.uk
