2018 Who Loves Who Competition is now closed.
We will keep you updated via our Social Media and website for when the winners will be announced. Stay tuned!

Who Loves Who Competition 


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.
