#Summershot 2015 Cash Recipients Announced

#Summershot 2015 Cash Recipients Announced

#summershot was developed as a means by which local music blog NZMusic4U could contribute to the NZ music community, and as a result build trust, while also helping out artists in a small but material way. The most effective approach was found to be the of support up-and-coming artists with small amounts of cash that they could use for whatever needs they may have.

#summershot is a random draw out of fifty pre-selected artists who have been chosen for having created a track that has given this site's curator a "dopamine hit".

Three artists are selected at random from the fifty candidates, each being gifted NZD $1,000 to do with what they wish.

The pre-selection of the fifty candidates is done over the December/January period, and announced throughout January. There have been two #summershot campaigns to date, in 2013 and 2014.

The winners of #summershot2015 are:

Bad Blocks
Leno Lovecraft
