Hello, Sea Music friends. This year we will hold our second Song Writing Contest. So dust off those sea songs, open your notebooks and come and bravely give it a go!
This year we are honored to have two very fine judges, Craig Edwards and Nick Noble, both with a vast store of sea music knowledge and experience.
The rules are:
1. The song must have a maritime theme.
2. A song must be performed by the songwriter, from memory, either a capella or with self-provided acoustic instrumental accompaniment. If the song was co-written, the performer must be one of the songwriters.
3. Enter by emailing your name and address and the song’s title to info@pmffest.org. You will receive an email reply.
4. Bring a copy of your lyrics to the venue on the day.
5. Because our time is strictly limited, the competition will be limited to the first 15 entrants. Each entrant will have a maximum of eight minutes. If slots are available on the day of the competition, walk-in competitors will be welcome. (Bring a copy of your lyrics.)
6. Entries will be judged on maritime themed lyrics, originality, tune, and overall presentation.
7. The winner will be invited to sing the song at the Saturday evening concert.
We had a wonderful response last year and some really fabulous songs from our sea music family. Keep them coming and keep writing!
