Launch of birthday anthem competition!

15th Anniversary Anthem Competition!

We want a young composer to write a CELEBRATION anthem along the themes of INSPIRATION and ACHIEVEMENT.

The winning artist will record their song in a leading London studio with an experienced producer and team of industry professionals - a prize almost too good to be true!

The winning song will also be performed at the Jack Petchey Foundation Festival of Youth in Spring 2015. The celebratory event will bring together young people from across London and Essex including our major programmes Step into Dance, Jack Petchey’s Glee Club Challenge, the Speak Out Challenge and Panathlon.

The anthem can be from any genre and style from a solo artist, massed choir/group, band or vocal duo.  It MUST be original, all your own work and no more than 4 minutes long.  It MUST have instrumental accompaniment and strong lyrics. The competition is open to any individual or group from across the UK and all applicants must be aged 11-25.

8 finalists will be selected for a mandatory boot camp with industry professionals to offer guidance and advice on song-writing, performance and musicianship. The groups will then re-record their songs, taking on board the feedback from the boot camp. Finally, the top 4 entries will face a public vote via YouTube and judging from a panel of experts. Each of these methods will account for 50% of the final scores.

So, if you are aged 11-25 and produce inspirational music don't waste any time - make your voice heard above the noise! Closing date is Friday 11th August.

TO ENTER: Upload your song to YouTube and send the link to shudson@petchey.co.uk

The song does not have to have a video, but you must include #15thAnniversaryAnthem in the tags section and subscribe to the Jack Petchey Foundation YouTube channel.
