The first batch of live status updates for UKSC 2016 song entries has just been published. If you have already entered a song in this year's event you can check now online to see if your song is a confirmed Semi Finalist. Full details are at http://www.songwritingcontest.co.uk/entry-status.html
If your song is a Semi Finalist we recommend that you use this to get local media coverage. Every year many entrants receive extensive local radio and press coverage for their semi finalist positions in the event. The BBC are also very strong supporters and many have received BBC Radio play for their entries. Check out our Facebook Page and scroll down to last year's News Posts to see some of this coverage. Visit at https://www.facebook.com/uksongwritingcontest We will also have a section on the contest website soon about news coverage with tips on how to achieve this. Also visit the Facebook UKSC Community Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/uksongwritingcontest to join in the discussions with other songwriters.
Please note that all songs marked in the status update as Decision Pending, songs that did not move on to the semi finals, will still be considered for Commended Entry Awards.
We are also regularly awarding copyright registrations, books by contest judges, headphones, microphones etc to entrants picked at random each week - anyone who enters could be chosen.
