Nannup Emerging Artists Award

 The Nannup Emerging Artists 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 are honoured to continue this legacy as it is a big part of what we passionately believe in: supporting, nurturing and encouraging emerging artists.

Each year ten artists get selected to perform two original songs to a supportive audience. The Emerging Artists Award winners get recording time with Lee Buddle at Crank Recording and recording time with James Newhouse at Lamb Chop (thanks to Totally Sound, our fantastic sound crew). The winners will also receive a $500 voucher from Zenith Music in Claremont.

Massive thanks to our sponsors for their support and for sharing our vision.

Winners are selected by an industry pool of judges and announced at the opening of Sunday’s Amphitheatre concert.

Previous winners include Karin Page, Loren Kate, The Tommyhawks, Minnie Marks, Dan Howls, The Broadbent Brothers, Jake Hatch, Jack Davies & The Bush Chooks, Sunday Lemonade, MissGenius
