    A panel of industry representatives from APRAlAMCOS, Sony Music Foundation and Universal Music will judge the entries. Tracks that best describes this year’s National Youth Week will be selected  and will feature on a double album, It Starts With Us.

    Last year’s album featured guest appearances from Bliss N Eso, Justice Crew and long time international hip-hop legends Public Enemy.

    This community-driven project is a great opportunity for unsigned artists to gain exposure.

    This project has been made possible by the support of MMAD sponsors APRAlAMCOS, Universal Music and the Sony Foundation.

    MMAD is a community-driven outreach program that helps in the juvenile corrections facilities around Queensland and NSW.

    Our Vision: Every young person has someone who believes in them and the opportunity to live their full potential.

    Our Purpose: To inspire young people to make positive choices so that they can find their place in the world.

    CEO of MMAD, Dominic Brook said:

    “Music is a powerful way to help young people express their thoughts and feelings, and more than ever we feel that by giving kids their own voice, they will be able to tackle whatever it is that is going on in their lives in a positive way. At MMAD we see young people every day affected by some pretty big issues that impact  the whole community, so we want to give them an opportunity to collaborate with each other and come together, whatever their background, through music and find positive solutions to their concerns.

    “Basically, we are helping young people transform their lives by learning how to break negative cycles in their life.

    “We do this through music, dance and mentoring.”

    MMAD's podcast show made in Kariong JJ, features the guys from Bliss N Eso dropping some inspirational bars of wisdom.

    The HTH Initiative has started the careers for past recipients, Chelsea Jane, Jimblah, RUNFORYOURLIFE and last year’s winner, QLD-based MC I am D who had just released his debut EP The Daley Grind and has since put the $10,000 he won towards producing and promoting his first full-length album.

    When interviewed by APRA AMCOS, I Am D described the moment he found out he had won the grant;

    “I got a call from Suffa (Hilltop Hoods) on Friday morning while I was at work loading bags onto a plane and pretty much had to cut the call short. He basically said I had won and I was trying to hold it together like some idiot on the radio winning the day’s jackpot.”
