Songwriting Success

Congratulations to Olivia Westman who was awarded 2nd place in the Year 7 and 8 category of the Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF) National Songwriting Competition for her beautiful song, ‘You Don’t Know What Love Is’.

For over 21 years, the National Songwriting Competition has been a platform to develop and drive the next generation of Australia’s musical talent and is the largest youth songwriting competition in Australia. This year there were 900 submissions nationally with one song per person. Judges assessed various aspects of each song including the lyrics, melody, structure, and originality. 

The prize includes $750 worth of musical equipment, tuition or production.

Well done, Olivia, on your incredible accomplishment! We look forward to hearing more of your songs in the future.
