New kid on the block, Australian Music Week (AMW) is set to be the first 5-day music celebration and conference incorporating live music taking place in Cronulla NSW this November.

Designed for industry executives, recording professionals, artists and the music lover, and focuses on the business of global music. Ultimately focusing on providing the tools and knowledge to build a profile in the business and put you face-to-face with the leaders who shape the entertainment industries.

Heath Media and Australian Music Week (AMW) have also announced they’ll be teaming with Captured: Australia.

Captured: Australia is the third incarnation of the Captured music video project that pairs up local bands and musicians with local emerging filmmakers all through an open competition. The result of the pairing is, after 2 months of allocated production time, a music video or a short film under 5 minutes. These music videos and short films travel around the region for a series of events and are supplemented by an online campaign where the public votes on their favourite video.

All bands that apply to AMW will be able to opt in for automatic consideration for  Captured: Australia.  Applications are now open for Australian Music Week –
