An Incredible Opportunity for Up-and-Coming Songwriters

Entries are now open for the UK Unsigned Songwriter of the Year 2017!

​​​This competition is really something special. It's all about the songwriter - you don't have to be an incredible musician or a talented singer (in fact if you're a talented writer but have no desire to be a performer, you can even use session singers or musicians to showcase the songs for you). What you need to do is craft a song. Maybe it'll convey deep emotions that really resonate with people, or maybe it'll make them want to get out of their seats and dance. Whatever your style, it's an opportunity not to be missed.

There's an incredible array of prizes on offer for runners up, and the grand prize for the first place winner:

  • 12 month mentoring with the Songwriting Academy
  • A one week songwriting retreat in Spain
  • £1000 of Yamaha musical equipment of your choice
  • Have your song professionally recorded by the good folks at NashTracks
  • A tour of Caffè Nero venues, performing around the country
  • Having your music added to the Caffè Nero in-branch playlist
  • PLUS two VIP tickets to the 'Making It Happen' Songwriting Academy conference

If that's not enough to get you giving it a go, we don't know what would be!

Plus Nordoff Robbins are the charity of choice for 2017, so by taking part you'll be helping to support other people with music. You get a great opportunity, and the ability to give something back. Can't argue with that.

It's open until mindnight on 31st August, so you've got more than enough time to polish up some previously written tunes and even pen a few more.
