Winners of the 2015 Songwriting Competition Announced!

The winners for the 2015 National Songwriting Competition have now been announced!

Now in its 13th consecutive year, the Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF) National Songwriting Competition was established to inspire creativity, imagination and self-expression for all school age children throughout Australia. This year we received more than 700 entries from children aged from 4 to 18 years of age.

Entry is free and the prizes are in the form of musical equipment or tuition plus an exciting prize from Spotify. The lucky winner of the 11+12 year group category will also win studio-recording time with Spotify for the chance to professionally record their original song. With over 30 prizewinners in different age categories, the standard this year has been exceptional.

The judging panel was made up of music industry leaders and ACMF Ambassadors such as Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson, Rob Mills, George Ellis, Peter Northcote and Milly Petriella & Greg Morrow from APRA AMCOS, as well as Bel Harper and Lisa Omagari from oOh!Media.

“There are incredible songwriters all around Australia…the judging was a very tough job! Congratulations to everyone who entered” – Rob Mills

“Our Competition is the largest in Australia and I am delighted that once again we have discovered some wonderfully talented songwriters” – Don Spencer OAM, Founder & CEO ACMF

The ACMF would like to thank all of the supporting partners of the 2015 National Songwriting Competition, including APRA AMCOS, Spotify, oOh!Media and Born & Raised Graphic Design.
