NOVA has launched an initiative to allow personal playlists to be added on the network.

Nova today announced the launch of The Playlist Project, a new initiative that allows music lovers to broadcast their personal playlists on commercial radio.
The Playlist Project, powered by Nova and Myspace and presented by Just Car Insurance, is the first collaboration between two music outlets that allows playlist creators to construct their own show on the Nova network.

15 finalists, determined by an expert judging panel, will broadcast a one hour show from 10pm weekdays on the Nova network. The creator of the playlist with the most votes, as determined by Nova and MySpace audiences, will win a one week residency programming a nightly show on Nova and will score $5000.
Mohit Bhargava, dmg Radio Australia’s Digital Product Manager said, “Digital media allows anyone to compile and broadcast their music playlists to reflect all aspects of their life from working out to road trips and parties.

On Myspace alone there are over 110,000 playlists created each month in Australia. The Playlist Project has been developed to celebrate this and entrusts our audience with an opportunity to broadcast their playlist on Nova.”

Nova’s The Playlist Project launches on Monday 7 February with registrations closing on 28 February. The one hour playlist broadcasts will kick off on Monday 7 March with the winner announced on 28 March.
