The University of Tasmania Conservatorium of Music in association with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) are proud to present in 2013 the UTAS Stephen Schwartz Songwriting Award.
During the 2010 Festival of Broadway, the inaugural UTAS Stephen Schwartz Songwriting Award was won by outstanding Australian contemporary songwriter Louise Anton for her song, "Here I Am". Last year, Matthew Robinson won and is currently in New York working on his third musical, Atlantis.
This new and prestigious Award valued at $10,000 is being offered again in 2013 to advance the career of an emerging individual songwriter or song writing team. In addition to the award, second and third runners up will be gifted $1500 and $500 respectively.
This Award offers the recipient the opportunity to build networks with the world's finest songwriters and composers of musical theatre, hear their work performed by some of Australia's best musicians, and receive financial assistance toward further career development.
The UTAS Stephen Schwartz Songwriting Award is sponsored by the University of Tasmania, Conservatorium of Music, and their innovative and unique Bachelor's Degree in Singer-Songwriting.
Administered as part of the APRA Professional Development Award program, the UTAS – Stephen Schwartz Songwriting Award will provide a promising Australian songwriter in the genre of musical theatre with a development grant of $10,000.
