Frequently asked questions
Do I have to be a member of APRA AMCOS or another Performing Right Organisation (PRO) to enter?
Songwriters who have no current PRO affiliation may apply. However we do suggest that if your original songs are being broadcast on TV/Radio, streamed or downloaded for sale online or performed live in a public venue, you should join a PRO to ensure that you collect your songwriting royalties.
