The Who Loves Who Competition is a chance for year 9 to 13 students to celebrate New Zealand music by recording their own unique and evocative interpretation of a New Zealand song.
This competition is Supported by a Music Grant from Recorded Music NZ. We are opening this competition early this year to allow more time for YOU to get into it, play with ideas and think outside the square…
The first place getter receives a day’s recording session at a professional studio of their choice. All finalists will get their tracks mastered by Kog Studio mastering wizard, Chris Chetland, to be released on a Who Loves Who Competition album.
Entries close Friday 19th of May.
Entries can be made online or by post.

Don McGlashan on hearing Levi's recording said this:
"Levi Sarah from Kaipara College has done a version of my song Bathe In The River that I absolutely love. It's a complete re-imagining of the song, without losing any of the message, and it's thoughtful, sophisticated and heartfelt at the same time. Beautiful.”
