Whyalla Recording Scholarship

Our 2018 so far.....

has announced not one but TWO Winners - plus a Runner-Up!

This year for the first time Entries were open to Original musicians
aged 12 to 21 from Regions stretching from Tumby Bay to Mount Remarkable.

Candidates submitted their music online, with Finalists
then chosen to be Auditioned and interviewed in Whyalla.

Judges for WRS 2018 were Mark Tempany & Alison Hams from Stormfront Productions,
acclaimed singer songwriter Megan Laurie and last year’s WRS winner BREEZE Millard.

“The aim of WRS is to unearth the best young Original music talent in our Region, and then
tailor a prize to inspire & assist them to launch their music professionally to the world"
Mr Tempany said.

"As far as we are aware there is nothing like WRS anywhere in Australia (or maybe the world)
and the fact we are entirely independent & able to operate totally "in-house" is exceptional"
said Ms Hams.

19 y.o.

on-going promotion & support to launch it and manage her music.

The Whyalla Recording Scholarship is an entirely philanthropic initiative
