Helpmann Academy's Langley Award for Jazz

Generously supported by the K & S Langley Fund

The Helpmann Academy is pleased to invite applications for Helpmann Academy’s Langley Award for Jazz, proudly supported by the K & S Langley Fund.

Valued at $7,500, Helpmann Academy’s Langley Award for Jazz provides an outstanding early career jazz musician with the opportunity to undertake pivotal career development projects, enabling them to take steps towards establishing themselves as a professional musician.

The award will empower an emerging musician to seek out and tailor projects that will provide invaluable opportunities for learning, skills development, or the resources for recording or touring; accelerating them towards their goal of a sustainable jazz career.

The award is open to final year students and graduates from the Jazz Program at Elder Conservatorium of Music, The University of Adelaide. Applicants must be final year students, or have graduated within the last five years, demonstrate excellence in their work and a rigorous commitment to building a career as a professional jazz artist. An important aspect will be knowledge sharing and recipients will be expected to share their experiences through public forums.
