The Allingham Festival Songwriting Contest is back, offering songwriters the opportunity to win €1000!

Songwriters are invited to submit their entries using our online entry system or by CD. We welcome music of all styles. The deadline for entries is September 30th. A shortlist of entrants will then be invited to perform in our live final which will be held on Friday November 4th 2016.

The winner on the night will walk away €1000 richer, and will also be invited to perform again in our Saturday night concert the following evening. 

Visit for more info and for a list of rules. 

Here's a video of the 2015 winner Niamh Mc Kinney performing her song 'Down Near the Sea' in last year's live final, introduced by John Meehan, with judges Cathy Jordan, Ian Smith and Chanel Mc Guinness.
