National Songwriting Competition

Nationwide songwriting competition gives all children a voice

Imagine a world without music…The Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF) is committed to bringing the magic of music to children across Australia. Our annual National Songwriting Competition is designed to encourage creativity and self-expression through songwriting. Now in it’s 13th consecutive year, this program is endorsed by the Federal Minister for Education, Christopher Pyne MP.

Students from every school in Australia are invited to put pen to paper and enter an original song for a chance to win in a share of over $20,000 of musical equipment and tuition and much more!

Simply by using your phone, iPad, computer, you can record yourself singing your very own original song. Enter your own song, or convince your teacher to get your whole class or grade involved! For full terms and conditions and TO ENTER, visit Entries are now open and close at midnight, 21st October 2015.

Entry to the competition is FREE, however a donation to the ACMF would be appreciated. Your support will make a huge difference in bringing the magic of music to disadvantaged children across Australia.

Teachers and parents are encouraged to use this opportunity to develop children’s learning, improve self-esteem and encourage individualism. Don Spencer, CEO and Founder says; “Songwriting is a highly creative process. We want kids to free their imagination and engage with learning in a fun way.”

This year, the ACMF is proud to welcome Marlisa, winner of the 2014 X-Factor, and Rob Mills, esteemed actor and singer, as our National Songwriting Competition Ambassadors. Marlisa and Rob will be supported by ACMF Youth Ambassador, Latifa Tee, a rising superstar in the music industry.

“Songwriting brings out the best in me! It’s such a great feeling creating new music to enjoy, inspire and share. Music makes us learn more, we can go beyond what we know. And for the many young people like me, go forth and grab the opportunity. Join now and share your talent!” – Marlisa
