triple j Unearthed High 2017 - Now Open!

The search is back on! APRA AMCOS is proud to partner with triple j Unearthed High for 2017 as they aim to find Australia's next best high school musical act.

Unearthed High has been discovering, sharing and creating opportunities for high school aged artists across Australia for 10 years. With luminaries emerging from the national competition including winners Stonefield, Gretta Ray, Japanese Wallpaper, Mosquito Coast and Asta as well as some incredible finalists like Montaigne and Hockey Dad, going on to release amazing music, tour the world and appear on festival bills.

To Enter:

Upload an original piece of music to the triple j website along with the high school you attend. You can be in a band, a solo act, producer or MC as long as at least half of the act is in high school. All genres of music are eligible, including dance, electronic, hip hop, indie, metal, pop, punk and roots. Entries close at midnight on Monday 31 July.

The winner will be flown to triple j to record, mix or master their music, which will be played on triple j and triple j Unearthed. They’ll also receive music industry advice and triple j will visit their school. The best Unearthed High entry from an Indigenous artist, as well as being eligible for the major prize, will win ongoing mentoring from the Association of Artist Managers (AAM) and a songwriting workshop at their school by the APRA AMCOS Songmakers program.

The triple j Unearthed High finalists will be revealed on Mon 7 August followed by the announcement of the best Indigenous high school act live at the National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs) on Sat 12 August. The 2017 Unearthed High winner will be revealed on Thurs 17 August.
