Hilltop Hoods Initiative 2016

Looking for some help to get your career off the ground? Think you can put $10,000 to good use releasing an album or EP?

The Hilltop Hoods Initiative offers an up-and-coming Australian hip hop or soul artist a grant to help fund the manufacture, marketing and distribution of a release of five or more songs. Along with cold, hard cash, the winning artist will also receive legal advice courtesy of David Vodicka and Media Arts Lawyers, which can be used for general legal or specific career advice, and a Love Police ATM merchandise start-up kit (to the value of $500).

Entries will be judged by a panel of key figures in Australian hip hop including Hau, Nish, Ran-Dee, Raph and Tom Thum.

Previous winners include Sarah Connor, Jimblah, Chelsea Jane, I AM D and RUNFORYOURLIFE.

Applications are now open – More information: http://apraamcos.com.au/hth
