Music SA and  the Government of South Australia’s Music Development Office present Clip Combat, an initiative to encourage South Australian filmmakers under the age of 26 to build awareness of local SA musicians by submitting a music video to the Clip Combat! competition.

Do you spend hours watching music videos on your favourite device? Ever wondered what it would be like to actually make your own? Well the Clip Combat! music video competition is your chance to team up with a local band, singer, rapper or producer to create a music video of an original song.

You will also be invited to attend a free Music SA workshop and submit your clip for camera-to-camera battle.

By entering the Clip Combat! competition you could win up to $5000 in prizes and have your clips premiered nationally. From a field of publicly voted finalists, the overall winner will be announced on the night of Thursday 18th July 2019 at a special screening event to be held at the Mercury Cinema as part of the Umbrella: Winter City Sounds live music festival.

Plan it, shoot it, cut it!
