Songwriters worldwide can enter the competition to have the chance of winning writing sessions with Stuart Epps and Mark Cawley

The 2019 UK Songwriting Contest has opened for entries, but any budding songwriters will need to hurry as the 14 July deadline is less than four weeks away. This year each entry will be judged using a star rating system. The successful songs will go through to the semi-finals, at which point those contestants will be able to follow the judging live to see if they progress to the finals and grand finals. It will also be possible to follow events unfolding on UKSC’s social media platforms.

The winner of the competition will receive a cash prize and an opportunity to co-write and record a song with producer Stuart Epps (Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Oasis) at his personal studios. While, other prizes include a personal session with songwriter Mark Cawley and Songwriters Guild memberships, in what promises to be the most rewarding year for competition entrants to date.

This year, three new artists join the judging panel. All are previous winners of the UKSC and include Belle Humble who has enjoyed chart success across the world, Katie Kittermaster [pictured] has recently signed up to tours with big names including Ronan Keating and Neil Fitzpatrick whose winning song has since gone on to raise over $100,000 for charity.
