Young songwriter to win TV exposure

News Image

Reality TV series XVenture Family Challenge, airing in early 2019, is all about team work, relationships and discovering inner strength where families are given challenges which they have to overcome by working together.

Presented by ecostore, XVenture Family Challenge was created, developed and produced by global experts in learning, leadership and team development, XVenture which is dedicated to creating rich learning, leadership and media content and delivery.

Open to musicians and aspiring songwriters aged 11–18 in Australia and New Zealand, entrants will remix the XVenture Family Challenge theme song. Entries close 1 September.

Entrants are being asked to download the stems for the XVenture Family Challenge theme song Treasure by Edens March and create their own version, with no limit on style. The winning song will be chosen by Edens March and the XVenture team.

The winner will win a trip to Auckland to record their own track, where they will have access to a professional sound studio for a full day alongside New Zealand sound engineer, musician and songwriter, Ben Malone.

In its second season (the first piloted in New Zealand) the TV series will put the strength of 16 Aussie and Kiwi family units to the test in a series of mental and physical challenges.

Secrets to creating the most solid and caring family units will be revealed over the eight episodes with the winning family set to win a cash prize of $25,000.
