Hilltop Hoods $10,000 grant for emerging artists
Hilltop Hoods and APRA AMCOS are teaming up once again to give one emerging Australian hip hop/soul artist or group $10,000. The initiative will help fund the costs associated with the manufacture, marketing and release of an album, legal advice from Media Arts Lawyers, plus a Zoo York prize pack will also be included.
The initiative is open to artists around Australia who haven’t previously released an album professionally and who are members of APRA AMCOS. It will be judged by a panel of Australian hip hop figures and artists including Hau, Nish, Ran-Dee, Raph and Tommy Illfigga.
The initiative has already opened many doors for emerging Australian hip hop/soul acts. Previous winners include Jimblah, Chelsea Jane, I AM D and RUNFORYOURLIFE. Applications open Tuesday 20 January.
