Another win for dirtgirlworld

BORN out of the Northern Rivers, children’s entertainment dirtgirlworld is taking on the universe after winning the International Songwriting Competition, in the childrens’s music category.

The United States based award is the first international win for the creative duo of Hewey Eustace and Cate McQuillen who created the animated series in 2002.

They have since won eight awards including a Dolphin Award, an AFI Award and were nominated for an English BAFTA.

"We have our own shelf now," Mr Eustace said. "When I found out we were in the final eight, that was enough. But to win it’s just gob-smacking."

The song Every Little Drop, which earnt the duo the win, will feature on Dig It, the follow up album for the duo to be released later this year.

"It’s a reggae inspired song with the message behind it of how precious water is," Mr Eustace said.

Dirtgirlworld wasn’t the only win for Australia however, with country music singer Kasey Chambers taking out the grand prize for her song Beautiful Mess.
