In your dashboard you will see all songs that you have entered and you will see your results and certifcates there. The dashboard is often updated with information so it´s a good idea to visit and check regularly. If there is a problem with your song entry the details will be posted there. Please also make sure that your contact details are correct - if you change your email address remember to update it there so that we can contact you about your songs.
YOUR SONG ENTRIES
Semi Finals results for songs entered before the early deadlines are already online in your dashboards. All songs that you enter now until the final deadline of 14 October will have Star Ratings, Semi Finalist results and Certificates online before the end of this month. If your song is chosen as a Semi Finalist a Semi Finalist Certificate will be prepared for you and if the song then goes on into the Finals or Grand Finals the Certificate will be updated to reflect this. Commended Entry, Highly Commended and Special Mentions are also awarded for outstanding songs. Star Ratings appear on the Certificates. Check your dashboard for updates. In your dashboard you will also see a copy of each song you enter so that you can verify for yourself that it is safely in the contest.
WORLD CONCERT DAY
Every songwriter and entrant in the UKSC this year will receive a personal invitation to take part in World Concert Day 2020. Special instructions will be sent to every entrant with details on how to best use and profit from this opportunity and the UKSC will promote entrants in the event. More details will be available as we approach the event, which is set for Spring 2020. In the meantime we suggest that you "Like" and follow World Concert Day, and also Music Aid, on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest news about the events.
Prizes this year include co-writing a song with producer and UKSC judge Stuart Epps. Stuart now concentrates on developing new up-and-coming artists and he has worked very closely with some of the world´s most famous songwriters and artists. This is a unique opportunity to write and record with one of the most respected names in the UK music industry.

We will soon announce some new partnerships with the Music Aid Organization, with Song Copyright services, and with music distributers that will exclusively benefit you and all UKSC registered songwriters. We are working hard on developing these new arrangements and there will be some unique opportunities and offers coming your way soon.
