Emerging Artist Award

The Nannup Emerging Artist Award began with a generous bequeath from Melissa Raser, a beautiful musician who performed at Nannup and believed in the support of Emerging Artists. We continue this legacy as it is a strong part of what we believe in: supporting and exposing emerging artists.

Each year we choose 10 entrants that perform two original songs to a supportive audience, who are also the voters; each audience member can chose and submit their favourite act. Winners get recording time with Lee Buddle @ Soundmind Studios and James Newhouse (Totally Sound). Previous winners include Loren Kate, The Tommyhawks, Minnie Marks…

The Nannup Emerging Artist Award will be held at the Nannup Hotel from 3pm – 5pm on the Sunday of the Festival. The winner is announced at the opening of the Sunday night concert at the Amphitheatre.
