Australian singer songwriter Josh Pyke will run the Josh Pyke Partnership for the fifth year.
The Josh Pyke Partnership awards an artist to establish and execute a business plan.
Pyke conducts the Josh Pyke Partnership in partnership with Gregg Donovan or Wonderlick Entertainment and Stephen Wade of Select Music.
“I’m extremely excited to announce the JP Partnership will be returning this year! APRA AMCOS has generously partnered up with me again, and we will be awarding $7500 and mentorship to the winner. Get your entries in ASAP! Looking forward to hearing some exciting new music,” says Josh.
The winner of the 2017 award was Angie McMahon.
“This prize had a huge effect on my year because it meant I could pursue the professional goals I’d set for myself,” says Angie. “The vote of confidence from Josh Pyke and APRA helped people believe in my music, which is very powerful, and I’ve been busy pursuing opportunities since receiving the prize. It felt like I’d been passed the relay baton, and then I was off and running.”
To enter, applicants must not be signed to a recording or publishing company and must submit a business plan outlining how they would use the $7500 grant.
Entries are now open and will close at 5PM AEDT on March 31, 2018 with the winner being announced 8 June 2018.
