Judith Crossley Memorial

Songwriting Award

Welcome!

The Judith Crossley Memorial Songwriting Award was founded to encourage the writing of songs that tell South Australian stories: songs about South Australian people and places, songs about South Australia’s past and present.

The Award was made possible by the legacy of the late Judith Crossley, who was during her lifetime a well-known figure on the South Australian folk scene and was herself a fine songwriter.

The songwriting Award that bears her name continues one of Judith Crossley’s passions: the telling of South Australian stories in song.

Songwriters are invited to enter their original work. From entries received, ten finalists will be selected for judging at the Fleurieu Folk Festival.

The Judith Crossley Memorial Songwriting Award is held each year as part of the Fleurieu Folk Festival.

The 2019 Fleurieu Folk Festival was held 25-27 October at Willunga
