Prizes

PRIZES

Songs are judged by panels typically consisting of a male and a female music professional. Judges are asked to complete a feedback sheet for all entrants. Feedback sheets contain a scale (with explanation) plus space for judges to provide constructive comments on each song as they see fit. Some panels provide combined comments. Whilst we encourage judges to provide feedback they are under no obligation to do so (but most judges do provide some feedback).

Feedback sheets for Recorded, Instrumental and Lyrics sections are emailed to each entrant. Live section entrants will receive their feedback sheets at the end of the heat/final. Entrants are reminded that any such feedback represents only the view of the individual judges and usually is offered as a general guide only.

Winning songs from the Live section are recorded in professional studios. Songs from other sections may be re-recorded dependant on availability of sponsor studios.  All songs are mastered before release as digital downloads.
