Music Competition to lift profiles of local artists 

HerCanberra Team

Canberra independent songwriters and musicians are being given the chance to have their song feature in a national advertising campaign. Not only will the winner receive national exposure but also the opportunity to have a music video produced.

Film production house, Blue Clay Creatives and Mind Body Business (MBB) have teamed up with Lifted, a song competition aimed at giving recording artist the chance to be heard.

“We’re inviting artists to produce a unique piece of music which will feature in the national marketing campaign for MBB, an event to be held in Canberra October long weekend,” says project director Laticia Gibson. 

The winner will then have a music video produced by Blue Clay Creatives – a prize worth over $15,000.

The competition is open nationally to all independent artists.

“Although MBB is an event for businesses, its core objective is to help people realise and activate their potential. We see ‘Lifted’ as a platform for artists to do the same thing and we are excited to be able to offer this opportunity for exposure,” says Miss Gibson.

Organisers say the song should be motivating, uplifting and represent happiness, health, ambition and personal growth.

The competition closes midnight AEST Sunday 21 June 2015. For more information head to
