Stage 1 listening by the judges of The 10th Coopers AMP is nearly over.
The initial stage of the judging process has our judging panel listening to every Australian artist album release in 2014 - the results of this form the Longlist.
To complete stage 1 in a timely fashion so that the judges can set about creating a Shortlist we have set a deadline of midnight on November 17 for us to be notified of any 2014 Australian artist albums. For albums being commercially released after this date we still want to listen so we asked to be linked to advance online copies asap.
Please advise us of releases by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org Or by visiting us in Facebook and sending a message.
The Longlist so far numbers 47 (see below) but please note that this is not final - there are still around 50 albums being listened to by the judges with an anticipated 30 or so that we're yet to be notified about.
Want a taste of the Longlist? The Chairperson of the judging panel, Dave Faulkner, has been asked to create a playlist featuring a track from most (43) albums which are on the Longlist - you can listen to it by following this Spotify link (please do!).
