Under the theme ‘Moving The Motu With The Music’, the cover of the chosen song can be any genre or style, as long as it’s a waiata from an artist or band from Aotearoa.
The winner will receive $1000, plus have their version of the song featured on Tāhi and their social media channels, with the chance to record it at the RNZ studios. (If you win and you live outside of Auckland or Wellington, flights and accommodation will also be provided.)
There’ll be five finalists, with the four runners up winning $300 each. The public will choose the winner. Entries close March 12, with finalists notified by March 15. More info here.
