Australian Children's Music Foundation National Songwriting Competition Now Open!

The 2017 National Songwriting Competition entries are now open!

Every year, every student from every school across Australia is invited to put pen to paper and enter their original song for a chance to win prize-money that can be allocated towards musical equipment and tuition, as part of the ACMF’s annual National Songwriting Competition. The annual National Songwriting Competition is a nationwide initiative designed to encourage creativity and self-expression through songwriting. “Songwriting is a highly creative process. We want kids to free their imagination and engage with learning in a fun way” said Don Spencer, Founder & CEO.  

AMPAL is proud to once again be sponsoring the National Songwriting Competition.  AMPAL General Manager, Matthew O'Sullivan, remarked that "Encouraging the songwriters of tomorrow is extremely important, and AMPAL is very pleased to support the ACMF and the National Songwriting Competition, open to all school students in Australia.  We can't wait to hear the great songs that will be created."

Entries close 20 October 2017 and entry forms and other information is available at:
