Entries open for Tropscore 2014!


APRA AMCOS is thrilled to partner with Tropfest for a fourth year to present Tropscore. This one of a kind competition gives songwriters and composers the opportunity to create the soundtrack for a short film provided by Tropfest.
 
There’s a $5000 cash prize available, courtesy of APRA AMCOS. Plus the winner will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to perform their original film score in front of an audience of more than 90,000 at Tropfest. This year, the world’s largest short film festival will take place on Sunday, 7 December at Sydney’s Centennial Park.
 
“We are really excited to offer this opportunity to songwriters and composers,” said Michelle, O’Donnell, APRA AMCOS Manager of Film and TV.

“It’s the only competition of its kind in Australia and really showcases how important music is in terms of creating certain moods and meanings in films."

"Whether you’re a songwriter, play in a band or compose, I’d encourage you to try something different and apply for Tropscore this year.”

This year, songwriters, bands, budding musos and screen composers have Capture as their visual inspiration - a 2013 Tropfest New York finalist. The short film’s director, Jen Gerber, has also come on board as one of the Tropscore judges. 

Download the film from the Tropfest website: www.tropfest.com/au/tropscore.

Entries close 6pm, 9 October 2014.
