Unearthed High 2018 is Open!
Oh boy, we've been counting down the minutes until Unearthed High opens for 2018 and it's finally here! It's the time of the year where we begin a nation-wide search for the country's best high school act with no classroom is left unturned.
Now with 10 beautiful years of Unearthed High behind us we can't wait ot see what this new chapter will bring. We've been proud as punch to watch the rise of past discoveries like Gretta Ray, Stonefield, Hockey Dad, Montaigne, Japanese Wallpaper, and last year's winner - Arno Faraji. Speaking of #Farajiseason, Arno dropped by triple j Brekkie with Ben & Liam this morning to give us a sneaky preview of the song he recorded with Remi and Sensible Jay as part of his prize. This could be you!
As always, the best entries will be played on national radio and if you take out the top prize, we'll fly you to triple j to record, remix or master one of your tracks. We'll also hook you up with a mentor to get that priceless music industry adive, and triple j might even crash your school!
Ben & Liam, who had the honor of surprising Arno at his school last year have been in intense stealth training to make this year's big moment extra big and spesh.
We're stoked to also be bringing back our Indigenous Initiative this year. So as well as being in the running for the major prize, the best entry from an Indigenous artist will also win an ongoing mentorship with the Association of Artist Managers (AAM) as well as a songwriting workshop at their school by the APRA AMCOS Songmakers program.
So clean out your tidy-trays and tie up your shoelaces because we're taking entries right now! All you have to do to enter is upload an original track to triplejunearthed.com, select your school year and let us know where what school you're repping. If you've already got an artist page, great! Just make sure you go into your artist profile and check the 'Unearthed High' box and what school you're from in order to be considered.
You can find the full T&Cs at our Unearthed Comps page!
Honestly, I can hardly sleep, I'm so excited. GOOD LUCK!
