Subject: Obit: Alistair Hulett Songwriting Competition
From: GUEST,John Hamill Chairman AHMT
Date: 22 Jul 11 - 06:46 AM

A new songwriting competition 'Songs for Social Justice Award'. is being launched by Celtic Connections and the Alistair Hulett Memorial Trust.

Alistair was a songwriter, singer and campaigner for social justice who died in January 2010 and this competition follows the sell out tribute concert at Celtic Connections in January this year with Dick Gaughan, Roy Bailey, Karine Polwart and many others.

The competition is open to songwriters and musicians from across the UK and is for songs that promote equality and social justice. The judges include Peggy Seeger, Roy Bailey and Karine Polwart. The winners of the award will perform at the 2012 Alistair Hulett Tribute Concert at Celtic Connections and receive a cash prize.

Entries should be on a CD with an accompanying lyrics sheet and should be sent to The Alistair Hulett Memorial Trust, 19 Millar Grove, Hamilton, ML3 9BF. The closing date for entries is 26 October 2011.

Anything that reminds people of the great Alistair Hulett has my whole-hearted approval, but I can't help thinking it strange that a competition for songs that promote equality is restricted to UK entrants. I guess we're all equal, but the rest of us aren't quite equal enough.

Hi

Most songwriting competitions (rightly, in my opinion) limit the entries to songs recently composed, or "not in common use", not previously winners in other competitions, etc..

Are there conditions or restrictions like that in place for this competition?

.. and I realise this competition is in memory of Alistair, but does the Obit: prefix really apply?

Sorry I did not see another heading as the others were chord search, lyric search ect. The reason it is restricted to the Uk is purely logistical as the winner will perform the song at Celtic Connections 2012

"The reason it is restricted to the Uk is purely logistical as the winner will perform the song at Celtic Connections 2012."

So, performing at Celtic Connections is restricted to UK musicians?

Hi Gerry,
The reason it is restricted to the UK is basically because the AHMT is paying travel and accommodation for the winning writer.
Hope this helps.
