“I am so honoured that ‘Better in Blak’ has won the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition,” she posted on Insta, thanking “everyone who connected to a song that is deeply personal, written when I was feeling very alone.”

She adds, “I don’t feel alone today.”


Thelma was first recognised by the competition back in 2013 when she was named runner-up for her song ‘Breathe in, Breathe Out.’

Taking 2nd place in this year’s comp is Baker Boy for ‘Meditjin’ and Ruel for ‘Painkiller’.
