UK Songwrting Contest 2018
on: December 08, 2018, 01:20:24
Well the results for this 'competition'  are out. Did anybody else enter it ? @oorlab , @DanJames , others ???

 I got a semi-final place for one of my Pilgrims Way instrumentals, "The North Shore"

Quite pleased with that if only to get it heard a bit more and give the Project  a bit more kudos.

Congratulations @MrBouzouki . Apparently only the top 20% get to the semi-finals so that’s an achievement in itself.

I got 3 semi finalist positions with scores of 8,7 & 7- an improvement on last year so very happy. 2 of those songs wouldn’t have been written if I hadn’t been a member of this forum.

Aiming for ‘finalist’ next year :yes:

I never knew that there was a contest/competition going on.
Very clever move to keep that a secret. Just boasting, you know me.
Forum or no forum, the quality is yours alone. And that it is recognised is a miracle in itself. As a rule the maximum notes per second or the loudest wailers (intended as singing I mean) are the ones who get the recognition. And the price.

I am seriously happy to be here with people like you who give my days an extra lining.
Great achievements!
Kind regards, Gus

Always a bit of a lottery @LePlongeur, but hey, if you are creating a bit of interest then it's job done. 

Cheers @DanJames , we all thought that track of yours was a good one. I agree this place is a key part of my creative process now. If you want to be inspired, hang around the Kitchen.

@MrBouzouki  -  thanks for the tip
I now see
http://www.songwritingcontest.co.uk/about.html
that it is an international contest - most of the times these things are open to UK folks only.
But I will look into it and possibly enter next year.

Congratulations @MrBouzouki  and @DanJames  … that is awesome!
Very well-deserved and couldn't happen to nicer people. I hope that you contact your local news media with press release info as that is really a great honor!
