Event Format

Each episode will showcase the traditional music of a specific culture.

We invite a music celebrity from that culture to be the co-host.

Musicians (individuals & groups) from that culture are invited to send in their music videos (mp4). Together with the culture’s co-host we’ll choose the top 3-5 submissions to be part of the show.

The show will be aired on Australian TV.

During the TV show, we will introduce the selected musicians, show their music videos and then invite them to explain their music, whilst the cultural co-host and our audience may comment on the quality of their performance.

At the end of the show, we invite everyone to vote for their favourite performer on Social Media.


Why Participate as a Musician?

Whether singing, playing or dancing to traditional music is your hobby, passion or profession, you can use the AUSvision Song Contest to promote your music throughout the world.

The show is being aired on multiple platforms (TV, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn) and being promoted by multiple organisations (Gen1 and  AMCCU media in conjunction with the Victorian State Government).

But it doesn’t stop there. We will award the best  performer of each show to become part of an international Music Video created by AMCCU media to be released on Australia Day the following year.

How to get started?

Participate, express your interest Click here

Once we receive your message, we'll guide you through the process.

How you can create a Win-Win Situation for all of us

    • We need at least 3-5 individuals/groups of each culture to start a show. If you know others that play your traditional music, please encourage them to participate as well (or give us their details), so that we can start a specific show for your culture soon.
    • Also, please advise whether there is any traditional music celebrity of your culture that you could recommend or introduce to us, so he/she could become the guest host in the show remarking on everyone’s performance.
    • This would be really helpful. However, if you don’t know anyone, still apply and leave the rest to us.

If I join AUSvision, what happens to my copyright, the ownership of my song?

Essentially, the ownership of the song and its copyrights remain yours, you only give us all the rights to use, market and promote you and your song.

As charities, we and AMCCUmedia (Australian Multi-Cultural Communities United Ltd) only have the intention to promote you and your skills, so that you can have some commercial benefits. Neither of us has any intention to sell your song. Together with the Victorian State Government we simply wish to promote multiculturalism through culturally-diverse music and hence the AUSvision Song Contest.

For example, Eurovision never had the rights to sell “Waterloo” by ABBA, but they still promote Eurovision as the show that made ABBA known throughout the music world. Wouldn’t it be great if AUSvision could do that for you as well?

Sample Videos from Past Winners

Play Video about Girl playing musical instrument

Peranya Visitchantaragoon (Thailand)


Awesome Performance on Truly Traditional Instruments!

Peranya was wearing traditional clothing, her video was shot from different angles and distances, and she put a lot of effort into getting her network to vote for her.

Tips for improvement:

  • none


  • Add more musicians
Play Video about Man and woman dancing.

Leonardo Pereira (Brazil) & Katya Bogatyreva (Russia) from Forroz, Melbourne


Fantastic Dance Performance!

The video was shot during COVID Lockdown, so adding a drone gave it fantastic angles and different perspectives. Really creative!

Tips for improvement:

  • Wear traditional costumes.
  • Don’t shoot too long against the sun (makes the video dark).


  • Add a music band
  • Add more dancers


Play Video

Madremonte Band (Columbia)


Amazing & Entertaining Story Telling!

This is not just a video recording of a music performance, but a true Music Video about the hunting of a caiman from the Columbian jungle to Melbourne’s laneways.

It had it all: dance, costumes, an entire band performing, and truly entertaining visuals.

Tips for improvement:

  • Don’t go on holidays and forget to tell your network to vote for you
Play Video about Girl singing.

Vianna Mae Samar Ricafranca, composed by Eugenio Corpus (Philippines)


Remarkable Singing & Great Performance for a 15-year-old!

Activated her followers well.

Tips for improvement:

  • Use more traditional music and costume.
  • A single-angle shot (full frontal) for a 5-minute music video doesn’t provide enough variety. Editing the background was a good idea though.


  • Add a music band
