L2F Songwriting Competition 2018

Lichfield Arts aims to encourage new folk writing talent both within traditional and contemporary styles.

Last year we held the first Lichfield Arts Songwriting Competition – and what a success it was! We were really impressed with the quality of songs entered, and the six shortlisted songs were performed at L2F last year to great acclaim.

Congratulations again to Corinne Lucy the competition winner, and Luca Vincent who won the under-19 category.

This year we hope even more of you will enter the competition. Don’t worry if you are not a performer – if your song is shortlisted for performance at L2F 2018, we can arrange for local musicians to perform it for you.

Entries are open until 21 September. We can confirm that entry fees are again £5 per song (maximum 2 entries) with under-19 song writers entering for free.

There will be cash prizes of £150 for the best overall song and £50 for the best song in the under-19 category.

Good look with your entries – we look forward to hearing them!
