National Songwriting Competition 2017

Every year, every student from every school across Australia is invited to put pen to paper and enter their original song for a chance to win prize-money that can be allocated towards musical equipment and tuition, as part of the ACMF’s annual National Songwriting Competition. Our annual National Songwriting Competition is a nationwide initiative designed to encourage creativity and self-expression through songwriting. “Songwriting is a highly creative process. We want kids to free their imagination and engage with learning in a fun way” – Don Spencer, Founder & CEO.

“We have to encourage creativity in children. The current education system inhibits creativity – how else will children dream and blossom, if not through creativity? Songwriting is a vital form of self-expression. Songwriting has stopped children self-harming. It has allowed them to speak about abuse and trauma. It has allowed them to express love and forgiveness. It can increase literacy. It can promote understanding. This competition encourages every child, in every Australian state and territory to explore and create in such a positive way. It’s very important to the work of the ACMF, and me in particular.” Don Spencer, ACMF CEO and Founder.
