SONGWRITERS INVITED TO ENTER CANADA SOUTH SONG WRITING CONTEST
Submissions are now being accepted for the “2nd annual Canada South Song Writing Contest” presented by Sun Parlour Folk Music Society. Five finalists will be selected to perform in the contest
at the Kingsville Folk Music Festival on Saturday August 12, 2017. One overall winner will receive a $250 cash prize, a prize package from D’Addario Canada an importer and distributor of musical
accessories and instruments, and the opportunity to perform their winning song on the Main Stage at the Festival this year.
2016 winner Karen Morand from Windsor Ontario has been able to utilize this success when introducing herself to new venues and festivals. “To say you are the winner of a song writing contest gives you further credentials in a world full of many talented writers” says Karen.
“There are some really talented songwriters in our region and beyond,” co-producer John Law added. “This contest gives these writers the opportunity to showcase their craft, be judged by their peers, and an opportunity to perform at the festival.”
Contest rules, information and entry forms can be found online.
