With the “popUP NRW-Preis” (popUP NRW Prize), the NRW KULTURsekretariat has continued its existing sponsorship activities for ambitious next-generation bands from NRW launched in 2012. In November 2013, the prize was awarded for the second time, once again in the setting of the New Fall Festival in Düsseldorf.

The prize for a successful band from NRW on its way to national and international success, which comes with EUR 10,000 in cash, was given to the band Urban Homes from Cologne. The sponsorship award, which comes with EUR 2,500 in cash, went to the group Messer from Münster, while a third prize enabled Vomit Heat from Essen to record in a professional studio. The award of the first prize to Urban Homes also came with a sold-out performance in the Tonhalle as the supporting act of the band Tocotronic from Hamburg.

The prize will be awarded again in 2014 by a diversified jury of notable partners. It is a fixed feature of the “pop NRW” funding programme launched state-wide in 2012, which is operated jointly by the NRW state music council, the music department of the NRW Ministry of Culture as well as by the NRW KULTURsekretariat and local partners – the foundation for an effective and lasting network of artists, organisers, venues and sponsors.

It offers a coordinated range of workshops, performance opportunities, awards and coaching from professional trainers combined with a variety of year-round approaches to structural support, project funding and scholarships for high achievers. The objective of “pop NRW” is to better integrate local and regional levels of support, to professionalise interfaces with the music industry and to ensure connections with nationwide and internationally-orientated programmes. This professional, structured and focussed support with a single objective is intended to raise the profile of NRW’s high quality music scene outside the region, thus making it more competitive.
