Join as a writer
Is PRS for Music right for you?
Joining PRS for Music as a writer or composer means you can earn money when your music is used. You don’t need to be signed to a record label or a publisher, but you do need to be identified as the copyright owner of your music.
Whatever the genre, if you create your own music and your music is performed, broadcast, streamed, downloaded, reproduced, played in public or used in film and TV, you can join. We’re here to collect and distribute royalties for all music creators and music publishers.
Please note that if you're playing music as a DJ, representing a record label, or performing in a covers band but do not make your own music, you can't collect royalties as you won’t be the copyright owner.
Funding new music
PRS Foundation is the UK’s leading funder of new music and talent development across all genres, supporting music creators to develop their careers and reach their audiences every year.
