L2F Song Writing Competition 2022 – Its Back!!! And its time to send in your entries.

We had some amazing entries in 2021 and with the the return of the L2F – The Lichfield Festival of Folk, we are looking forward to hearing and supporting new song writing.

The competition is open to anyone who has an as yet unpublished, self-penned song, that broadly fits into the global folk tradition (and that’s a pretty broad tradition).

There is a cash prizes and the chance to win the opportunity to attend a Songwriting Forum with John Tamms.  Finalists will be invited to perform their song at our Folk Farm Festival Picnic in September, and two of those will be invited to the L2F Festival weekend to perform their song at one of the concerts taking place.

L2F is proud of its continuing commitment to new writing, and the competition is aimed at identifying and promoting song writing. This means that our judges are concentrating on the quality of the song writing not the production values. So, if you have a song in you and you want to share it with a wider audience then send your song to the L2F Song Writing competition!

Entry fee is £5.00 for a maximum of 2 songs. (Songs should not be more than 5 minutes long).

Format of entries – We are asking that entries are sent electronically (be it an MP3 file, A link to Youtube, Soundcloud or some other platform).

Good Luck!
