ARIA Emerging Artist Scholarship - Entries Close
ARIA (the Australian Recording Industry Association) and Virgin Australia are excited to announce that submissions for the second ARIA Emerging Artist Scholarship are now open.

The Scholarship is open to any Australian artist (represented by a current ARIA member) that hasn’t been previously nominated for any ARIA Awards category with an Album or Single before the 2018 Awards (ie 2018 entrants / nominees are eligible).

ARIA, in partnership with Virgin Australia, first introduced this initiative to acknowledge how much travel plays a role in building the career of an artist. This partnership was built to help support an emerging artist’s travel both domestically and internationally, to help them launch their career.

To enter, all ARIA members need to do is tell us what their proposed artist’s 2019 promotional strategy is, including a US tour plan and a brief description on how ARIA and Virgin Australia can help to achieve these tour plans and ambitions.
 
Please ensure that all submissions are sent through to awards@aria.com.au by 16 November 2018 for judging by ARIA and Virgin Australia representatives.  Note that entries are restricted to two per Member.
