Get Songwriting

Competition now open 

If you are a Year 10-12 high school student in Australia, it is time to let the music flow and get songwriting! Enter a song or two for your chance to win a place at the 2019 week-long USQ Artsworx McGregor Music Retreat. Valued at over $1400, this prize includes the opportunity to attend songwriting workshops, jam sessions, elective workshops, performances and more.  Your accommodation at the Retreat is part of the prize, and it will be fully supervised accommodation and meals for the week on-campus at USQ Toowoomba*.

*Please note: If the winner is unable to accept the Grand Prize, alternate arrangements will be discussed.

In addition to the overall winner there will be three highly commended entrants, one from each year level, who will receive a prominent songwriting text and the opportunity to be mentored by a current USQ music student.
