The 2019 National Songwriting Competition is now open for entries!

Every year, students from schools across Australia are invited to put pen to paper and enter their original song in ACMF’s annual National Songwriting Competition. Winners receive prize-money which can be allocated towards musical equipment or tuition.

For 2019, the competition has had some changes – there are fewer categories in which to enter, which means that the prizes are more substantial. We have also introduced the ability to enter a song as a school group, which has its own prize category – enabling the winning school to purchase valuable resources to improve their music program!

“Songwriting is a highly creative process. We want kids to free their imagination and engage with learning in a fun way” – Don Spencer, Founder & CEO.

AMPAL is pleased to again be sponsoring the National Songwriting Competition.  AMPAL General Manager, Matthew O'Sullivan, remarked that "AMPAL is proud to support the ACMF National Songwriting Competition, encouraging budding songwriters. We look forward to hearing the great new songs at the end of the competition.”

Entry is free, and entries close 29 August 2019. Entry forms and other information is available at:
