Bush Music Club's 60th Anniversary Songs, Tunes & Verse Writing Competition - amended
 

By Sandra Nixon
Posted Sunday, October 13, 2013

To remove confusion about par 9 - To assist in judging, each entry should include both a recording of the entry and a transcription of the entry (words and music). It is helpful to have only one entry per recording.

It is not necessary to send music transcription with songs. Printed words + MP3 or CD is all that is necessary.


As part of the Bush Music Club’s 60th Anniversary celebrations in 2014, the club is holding a Song, Tune and Verse Writing Competition. There are four different categories and the main condition is that compositions are based on an Australian theme and have a traditional Australian style.
CATEGORIES

  1. ORIGINAL SONG – of entirely original words with original music or set to a traditional tune.
  2. NEW TUNE / OLD WORDS – an original tune for an existing poem.
  3. DANCE, TUNE or AIR – a new tune not intended as a song.
