Have you got a story about being there for someone? Turn it into a song, and you could be on your way to Sydney to have it professionally recorded in front of a live audience.

The competition will be judged by a panel of expert musicians and songwriters, who will choose regional finalists from VIC/TAS, NSW, QLD, SA/WA and New Zealand. Each finalist’s songs will be performed at a venue TBC at the end of November.

You don’t need to be a great singer or songwriting genius—anyone can enter, any way you want. Just put your story into song, record it however you’d like—even on your phone—and upload it below!
