Big prize money is up for grabs at this year’s Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition.

With entrants coming from around the world as far as Bulgaria, Brazil, Latvia and beyond, this could be your chance to be a part of something great. Previous winners include Megan Washington, Kimbra, Gretta Ray and last year’s winner Amy Shark.

It’s $50 to enter in the competition with that money going to Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Australia (NRMTA).

First prize is a whopping $50,000, the largest cash prize in a songwriting competition, thanks to APRA AMCOS, Alberts and BMG.

Runners up also receive prizes with 2nd place getting $10,000 thanks to Australasian Music Publishers Association (AMPAL) and 3rd place getting $5,000 thanks to Aon.

There is also an “unpublished’ category which Brisbane’s Mallrat took out last year for her song ‘Better’.

Writers of any genre, style or stage in their career are welcome to apply. The competition is judged by industry professionals including songwriter Lior, Isabella Manfredi of The Preatures (previous first prize winner), Triple J Unearthed’s Dave Ruby Howe, producer Franz Tetaz and more

Entries close 5:00pm (AEST) on Thursday, 2 May 2019.
