With more than 80 eligible submissions to score, the hand-selected Industry Judges had their work cut out for them in selecting a winner for the exclusive photo shoot with renowned Aus Music Photographer, Ian Laidlaw.
There was not much between the scores of the top three artists, however Melbourne Polytechnic artist Karina Lehman came out on top of the Judges Scores.
Karina is a Chilean singer/songwriter, who’s original music is rooted in Latin America. Her style is a mix of Spanish guitar, romantic lyrics and Latin folk rhythms, along with her soft and husky voice.
Karina’s submission is truly unique incorporating elements of pop, bossa nova, jazz and folk while embracing multiple languages including Portuguese, Spanish and English.
Karina will work with Laidlaw to curate a photo shoot that will bring out her true essence as an artist, either in a studio or at an on-site location in Melbourne.
