The Scholarship focuses on helping emerging artists take the next step in their local and global touring career and was open to any Australian artist (represented by a current ARIA member) that hasn’t been previously nominated for any ARIA Awards category with an Album or Single before the 2018 Awards (ie 2018 entrants / nominees are eligible).
G Flip said, "Stoked to accept the ARIA’s Emerging Artist Scholarship for 2018. Thank you to the ARIA’s and Virgin Australia for allowing upcoming artists this opportunity."
Dan Rosen, Chief Executive ARIA said “On behalf of all at ARIA we are thrilled to present G Flip with the second ARIA Emerging Artist Scholarship Presented by Virgin Australia. I would like to thank Virgin Australia for their support and contribution which will assist in developing G Flip’s career and help her take her music to the world.”
