Forestside Shopping Centre have launched a Young Singer Songwriter Competition with a grand prize of £500, a studio recording session and the chance to have your song played on Cool FM. The competition is looking for songwriters who pen, perform and play their own songs in two categories, Under 17 and Under 20.
Young people need to send in a copy of their original song along with the lyrics by 30th September using one of the following methods:
- Email a copy of your entry to email@example.com
- Bring a pen-drive copy along to our helping hands desk and we can save it while you wait
- Drop a CD into Forestside where it will be picked up and put on file.
Once all entries have been received, finalists will be chosen to play live in Forestside during October. Winners will be announced in November, and they will embark on a year-long mentoring programme where they will learn from some of the best in the business about what it takes to be a music star.
Forestside Centre Manager Lee Cutler said “Each year we are blown away by the calibre of entries we receive and this years looks set to be no different, I cant wait to see whats in store for us.’
Once all entries have been received semi-finalists will be chosen to play live in Forestside during the month of October. Finalists will then go on to play at a live performance in Sunflower Bar, Belfast on 25th November where overall winners will be announced.”
