The MELODIQUE VOCAL AWARDS is a singing competition for both amateur and professional vocalists, of any level of experience. It is an exciting opportunity to showcase your singing skills and win fabulous prizes!

We welcome talent locally, from across NSW, and Australia-wide, from ages 10 and up.

Winners – along with their prizes – will receive one of our stunning, signature rose-adorned trophies.

Each finalist will receive high-quality, professional, edited photos of their live performance! You don’t need to win in order to receive this amazing gift from us here at Melodique.

Each finalist will receive a copy of the judges’ feedback.

The final will be held live on stage in the heart of Wollongong on the Crown St. Mall stage.

Our competition is divided into two sections — one for the juniors (10-16) and one for the older teens and adults (17+). Only the six highest scoring competitors will win!

$59.00 inc GST per registrant

What People Say

“I had such a great time at the vocal awards. I had something to focus on and practice for so my singing really improved. I was initially nervous to get on stage but the atmosphere was so welcoming and supportive that I forgot about them once I got up there. I had the best time and just wanted to go up and sing again!”

Why do we think that our singing competition is the best?

  • Rather than charging smaller entry fees to gain larger numbers of entrants for small cash or low-value prizes, we charge a relatively higher fee for high-valued prizes – typically reducing the number of entrants which therefore increases your odds of winning!
  • We do not charge your family or friends for tickets or to attend. Yes, there is an registration fee for entrants, but it is otherwise a FREE event. The competition is held in a public space where your loved ones can easily come along and support you.
  • Our live finalists get 2 x FREE high-resolution, edited professional images. We pay the big fee for a professional photographer – so you don’t have to! This is well worth the value of registration and an amazing souvineer. You can use them on your social media and to promote your singing.
  • We don’t ask you to attend multiple heats. There is just one live event. In other words, we will not exhaust your precious time or ask you to perform on stage more than once.
  • Other competitions award ribbons… We award beautiful TROPHIES ADORNED WITH FRESH RED ROSES.


◦ There are two sections in the competition, and competitors are placed into either section based on their age category, 10-16 and 17+. There is no upper age limit.

◦ There is a 3rd, 2nd, & 3rd prize for both the junior and senior sections.

◦ Finalists and winners are decided by our judges via a score based system.

◦ We predict a minimum of 30 competitors will make it through to the final round to compete for the prizes live on stage.

◦ To make it through to the final round you may first be required to compete online. This would occur by via a video submission or via a live Zoom at-home performance. This step will be entirely dependent on the number of competitors who enter and if we are in surplus. If we are not in surplus, a competitor will go directly through to the live final. Be prepared to deliver an online performance within two 2 weeks of the live final date.

◦ We ask you to please provide and prepare to sing two song title options. It is likely however, due to time constraints, that you would only perform one song on the day of the final. If you are required to first complete online (as per above details), we don’t mind if the song approved is the same as the one you might choose to sing at the live final.

◦ The use of the microphone provided will be necessary at the live final.

  • Please note, as per the Competition T&Cs, there are no refunds for registration fees whatsoever and that this event is subject to reschedule at any time and even multiple times. Any rescheduled date may or may not suit a Competitor, though if online pre-judging occurs the Competitor can take part irregardless of the live final date. Many various elements can play into the reason for any reschedule, including Wollongong Council decisions – impacting the use of the space, the weather (this is an outdoor event), loss of staff (due to illness or otherwise), Covid restrictions, any uncovered conflict of interest occurring in relation to our judges and the Competitors – affecting the integrity of our adjudication panel, etc. Please consider these elements carefully prior to registration.
