High School Music Competition

This competition is open to school-aged students 16 years and over who write and/or perform original songs as bands or singer-songwriters.

How it works

Based on the submissions received, a panel of judges from Macquarie University's Contemporary Music program will select the participants for each heat. Heats will involve you performing your track (friends and family welcome) at Macquarie University's Studio 187. Finalists will perform on the final evening, and the winner will be announced immediately.
