About / FAQ

The Campus Music Comp is Australia’s longest running student Music Competition.

In 2020 the competition format saw a major shake up, to mark 30 years of the Campus Music Competition. With a focus on celebrating the huge amount of talent on our tertiary campuses, the Comp has moved away from awarding one major prize to now offering a wide range of opportunities throughout the year. The recipients of each prize will be hand-picked by industry judges, providing exposure of your music to some of the best in the business.

In 2024, we’re offering over $4,000 in prizes, along with $10,000 worth of grant money to be spent on Campus Music Activations.

Each winner will be announced on our NEWS page, as well as our social media pages:
