Night and Day Song Contest

The inaugural Night & Day Song Competition, in association with Lensmen Photography and Video Production, aims to support up and coming artists by providing the resources needed to increase their exposure and to get their song heard. The winner will be provided with a full day recording at their choice of three studios. Lensmen Photography and Video Production will provide two days filming and two days of editing to produce a music video. All four finalists will be given the opportunity to play a set at the festival during which the final decision on the winning song will be made.

Judging

Entries will be screened by a listening committee who will select twenty songs to be sent to the judges who will then select the four finalists. The judging committee consists of people involved in the music industry. Production value will not be considered when selecting finalists.
