ARIA announces ARIA Emerging Artist Scholarship presented by Virgin Australia

In November, ARIA officially launched the new ARIA Emerging Artist Scholarship Presented by Virgin Australia – a program aimed to support and foster Australia’s up and coming talent.
ARIA, in partnership with Virgin Australia, have introduced this new initiative as we are aware how much travel plays a role in building the career of an artist. This first time partnership has been built to help support an artist’s travel both domestically and internationally, to drive success for their careers.
Virgin Australia is about taking off to new adventures and we are looking forward to flying our local talent to the US to pursue their careers.
The Scholarship is 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 2017 Awards (ie 2017 entrants / nominees are eligible). The artist must have also appeared in the ARIA Top 100 Albums Chart, OR the ARIA Top 100 Singles Chart published between during the 2017 calendar year.
To enter, all ARIA members need to do is tell us what their proposed artist’s 2018 promotional strategy is, including a US tour plan and a brief description on how ARIA and Virgin Australia can help to achieve your tour plans and ambitions.
Please ensure that all submissions are sent through to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 5th February 2018, for judging by ARIA and Virgin Australia representatives. Note that entries are restricted to one per Member.
