Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition deadline extended

The deadline for entries to the 2016 Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition has been extended until 11.59pm AEST on 4 August 2016.  

The Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition is one of the world’s most prestigious songwriting competitions. It aims to support talented songwriters while raising much-needed funds for not-for-profit organisation Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Australia (NRMTA). 

This year’s winning songwriter/s will take home a cash prize of A$50,000 and join the eminent company of past winners Megan Washington (2009), Kimbra (2011), The Preatures (2013) and Husky Gawenda (2014).

AMPAL is proud to once again be sponsoring the second prize of A$10,000, with a third prize of A$5,000 also on offer.  All winners will also take home a microphone prize pack from Shure.

Entry fees will go directly towards the work of NRMTA, which uses music therapy to help people cope with the struggles of living with a wide range of needs. These include children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities, autism, trauma, illness, dementia, behaviour disorders and learning difficulties.  To learn more about the work of NRMTA, head to http://www.nordoff-robbins.com.au/.
