National Campus Music Competition

The Campus Music Comp is Australia’s longest running student Music Competition.

In 2020 the competition format saw a major shake up to mark 30 years of the Campus Music Competition. With a focus on celebrating the huge amount of talent on our tertiary campuses, we moved away from awarding one major prize to one artist per category. We also moved towards offering a wide range of opportunities throughout the year. The recipients of each prize will be hand-picked by chosen Industry Judges including A&R Executives, Booking Agents, Live and Electronic Artists and heaps more, meaning that your music will be seen by some of the best in the business regardless of whether you grab a prize.

This new approach allows us to make an impact on the development of several deserving, emerging artists each year which meant that in 2020 we gave away over $15,000 in cash, prizes and opportunities. SIX artists reaped some pretty sweet industry benefits

Submissions can be in the categories of Live or Electronic. Each prize will be announced on our NEWS page, including all of the deets you need to know about to be in the running. We’ll also send you shout-outs to remind you of deadlines in emails and on our socials. Take a look at the prizes we have announced so far, below….

We are pretty proud of ourselves for surviving to 30 and COVID stole a lot of our thunder in 2020, with us having to pull the pin on 95% of our live opportunities… so as we dive in to 2021, we are psyched to take back the power and are claiming ‘take two’ – let’s get this party REstarted!
