What is Super 8

Super 8 is a music based composition, competition.

Rolls off the tongue doesn’t it.

So what are we on about?

We have recorded a video for you to create the music for. You then get to keep it if you win.

It’s pretty simple and the prize pool is awesome.

No matter how you play, who you play with or the genre you dig you’re eligible. Basically we’re after anyone who can create an original piece of music while being mindful that it complements the video we’ve shot.

Super 8 culminates with a live event experience with the short-listed finalists either playing live to the video on the night or, if based on your musical approach and output you can’t perform live, a playback in front of a panel of esteemed industry judges. The event will take place at one of Sydney’s leading independent music venues in Feb 2018.

The Rules

Your song must be an original composition and not be available publicly to listen to or download until the day after the live final.

As a result it cannot have been entered into another competition prior to Super 8.
Please mix, master and sync your song to the video prior to upload.
Super 8 is open to Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents.
Please see the full list of terms of conditions via the link below.

Sync your track to the Super 8 Music Video

There is a one off entry fee of $55 per song entered with a discount for APRA members.
