The 2012 Hilltop Hoods Initiative is now open for applications. The Hilltop Hoods Initiative is a $10,000 grant funded by Hilltop Hoods and APRA to help emerginglocal Hip Hop artists to manufacture, market and release an album.
In past years the grant was restricted to South Australian residents but since 2009 the guys have made the grant available to applicants Australia-wide. In addition to the $10,000 in funding, the winner will receive legal advice courtesy of David Vodika and Media Arts Lawyers which can be used for general legal or specific career advice, plus a Shure Microphone prize pack. To top it off, the successful applicant will be invited to showcase at Song Summit, 26 – 28 May 2012 and will also have a support contact at APRA to help with a career guidance plan.
