The inaugural 2017 Whyalla Recording Scholarship (WRS) was launched in August 2016
by Whyalla-based one-stop music shop Stormfront Productions -
a Brand SA Hall Of Fame Inductee and SA Music Award Winner.
WRS began in order to provide the opportunity & resources for a Regionally-based ORIGINAL musician to
develop their music & musical identity over a sustained period of time to the highest standards utilising
Stormfront's sponsored support to record & release their Original song to the world.
2016-2021 saw WRS targeted towards young Original musicians (aged 12 to 21) but the concept has always been to
primarily support ANY Original Regional artists deserving of International production and support to get started.

This EDS can be customised to target any area needing development, and can be "as much or as little as required"
to progress that talent towards an eventual Professional career in Original music.
2022 onwards also sees WRS considering ANY exceptional Regional Original talent Under 35 who is
ready & willing to make a jump into recording & releasing their Original music to the world!
