The deadline for entries to the 2019 Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition has been extended to 2 May. AMPAL is proud to be sponsoring the Competition again in 2019.

The Vanda & Young Global 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).

With thanks to Alberts, BMG and APRA AMCOS, 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), Husky Gawenda (2014), Gretta Ray (2016) and Amy Shark (2018).

Two runners up cash prizes are also on offer with second place receiving A$10,000 thanks to AMPAL and third place taking home A$5,000 thanks to AON. An ‘Unpublished’ prize of A$5,000 is also up for grabs.

This is a global competition open to all songwriters – published or unpublished.
