Wiltshire Music Connect: Composition / songwriting competition

We are offering the winning artist / band / composer the opportunity of one evening’s free recording time at our recording studio in Chippenham.

The session will last 3.5 hours from 18:00 to 21:30 and in this time you will get the chance to professionally record a song with the help of our studio engineer and the team at Riverbank.

Once recorded, the song will be mixed and mastered for you as part of your prize, and sent to you as both a high quality .WAV file and an .MP3 file.

The prize is open to anyone aged 11 to 18 years old who is living in, or attending school in Wiltshire.

The closing date is 12 noon 14th October 2019.  A panel will judge the competition, and the winner will be announced on 28th October 2019 by a panel of judges.

The judges will consider creativity, originality and that hard to describe ‘spark’ for the listener – they will not be judging the quality of recording or experience of the composer / song writer.

Any original composition can be submitted – in any style or genre, from instrumental / classical pieces to pop/rock songs.

How to enter:

If you are new to Songwriter – you need to register and create your profile* here.  Upload your song / composition.

If you already have a Songwriter profile and are aged 11-18 your tracks will automatically be entered into the competition.

You can upload as many tracks as you like.

We’ll be announcing the winner on 28th October 2019 – we’ll send everyone who entered the result and it will also be posted on our website – where you can also find more information plus tips on writing and recording: wiltshiremusicconnect.org.uk/songwriter

You can listen to all Wiltshire tracks by using the Wiltshire filter here.

*if you are age 15 or under you need a parent or carer to register on your behalf and if you win the prize you will need parental consent to attend the studio session.
