Applications for Tropscore open today and Australian songwriters and composers are encouraged to apply. Applicants need to create a winning musical score or sync for one specially-selected film entered in Tropfest, the world’s largest short film festival.
This year’s short film and blank canvas is Remote, which was directed by Michael Noonan and was a finalist from the 2013 Tropfest competition.
Tropscore teams Tropfest with the resources of national songwriter and composer member organisation APRA AMCOS to give an artist or band a chance to perform their winning score live on stage to an audience the size of Ballarat city, as well as take home $5,000 cash.
Entries to APRA Tropscore 2015 opened 13 August and will close on 8 October 2015 at 6pm (AEDT), with finalists to be announced on 12 November 2015. Last year 12 finalists were selected from more than 400 entries.
