The launch event will take place on Saturday 30th September 2017 at 81 Renshaw Street.
Liverpool Acoustic will be hosting the Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon from 1pm to 4pm. During this time songwriters are invited to come along and find out more about the Songwriting Challenge from the organisers. There will be plenty of open mic slots available to compliment the two booked guests.
To enter the challenge a songwriter will choose a piece of art on public display in the Liverpool City Region (Liverpool, Wirral, Sefton, St Helens, Knowsley, and Halton). The songwriter then has a month in which to write a new song inspired by their chosen work of art and submit it as a recording along with a copy of the lyrics and a photo of the work of art. The judges will then choose 10 songs to go through to the Showcase Final on Saturday 13th January 2018.
Songwriters do not have to attend the launch event to enter the Songwriting Challenge.
