Satellite Project

SATELLITE PROJECT

The Satellite Project is a brand new songwriting competition centred around mentorship, songcraft and discovering new talent in Western Australia. It’s free to enter and entries are open now.

We encourage entries of all genres and types, from instrumental to hip hop, folk to rock, experimental to bluegrass and all sounds and styles in between. Entries aren’t judged on production quality and can be recorded on a phone, computer or by any other means; this is a competition about songwriting, with an emphasis on melody, composition, originality and lyrics when applicable.

Entries will be judged by a panel of music industry professionals, and the winning entrant will be paired with an appropriate mentor who’ll help them refine their song in preparation for recording.

The winning songwriter will receive:

  • An 8-hour mentoring studio session to refine their song
  • A recording session at Blackbird Studios
  • Mixing & mastering of their track
  • Photography and videography of the songwriting process filmed for RTRFM’s social media channels
  • A premiere of their song along with an interview on RTRFM’s Breakfast with Caitlin
