The 8th Australian Music Prize has struck a sponsorship deal with Shooting Star Picture Company which aims to streamline the entry process for artists next year.
“We’re simplifying the process for artists and going digital” says Scott B. Murphy, AMP founder and prize director. “Thanks to the support of D-Star via a sponsorship relationship, we now accept Australian artist album releases digitally and – when the panel is ready – our judges can access the music online, as and when it suits them.”
Director/ CEO Peter C. Skillman of Shooting Star, says, “Shooting Star has always been a great supporter of Australian music. We are absolutely thrilled to have D-Star’s DMDS audio system as the delivery mechanism for The 8th Amp. We look forward to expanding our role in the future.”
