Where have all the songwriters gone? Did everyone get signed to a record label overnight? Have they all quit songwriting and dedicated themselves to the day job? Did everybody win the lottery?
Here in the Allingham Festival office we were very excited to revive the songwriting contest to support and promote new musical talent, and to reward one lucky winner with €1000 for their song. We put up posters and posted updates and reminders on Facebook and Twitter. According to the stats, thousands of people have seen these ads. Thousands.
However, we have had such a poor response to the competition that we may have to cancel the contest and refund the few who have entered. We're somewhat baffled and greatly disappointed by this, but have decided to push the deadline for one more week in the hope that we'll get enough entries to run the competition.
If you know any who has a song or two, and might find €1000 handy, give them a little encouragement to enter the Allingham Festival songwriting contest.
