Now in its third year, SunScreen is Australia's first and only independent music video competition.

The aim of Sunscreen is to give independent artists and directors a chance to showcase their music videos without the competition of big budget videos from the majors. All genres of music are accepted. Even if you do not make the weekly screenings there is an opportunity for your clip to be selected on the SunScreen Channel on over 2,000 SBA jukeboxes around Australia.

The audience interactive competition commences on October 3rd 2007 and runs for eight weeks. A panel of industry judges assesses the entries and selects four Australian independent music videos to be showcased per week on SunScreen’s website for the eight weeks of competition. Two of the four videos each week will progress to the final based on the amount of online votes they receive from SunScreen audience members.

The final will take place at Festival of the Sun on December 14 & 15, 2007, where the 16 finalist’s videos will be showcased and subject to another audience vote. The final winner will be determined by the highest percentage of SMS votes by the Festival of the Sun audience and the winning director will receive $10,000 worth of Industry prizes geared towards a new video.

Last year Avision took the prize with their video for Intercooler’s track ‘Carving Others’, and they’re currently working on the next masterpiece. In 2005 the winner was Broken Yellow, who spent their 2005 winnings on shooting The Herd’s 'I was only 19', which has since been downloaded by thousands.

SunScreen provides the opportunity for directors to gain credibility as well as artists to gain huge exposure. All Sonicbids members that enter before October 1st will be considered to play live at Festival of the Sun.

Please note: Since this is a video competition, artists who submit must have a Supersonic EPK with a video uploaded. Also note that the competition is only open to Australian artists and videos with a budget of less than $15,000 AUD.
