UNSIGNED SONGWRITING CONTEST QUARTER FINAL for Open Mic UK

Unsigned Songwriting Contest Quarter Final: 10 unsigned songwriters from the national singing contest Open Mic UK’s Regional Finals have made the quarter finals of the Unsigned Songwriting Contest organised by Open Mic UK!

The Unsigned Songwriting Contest quarter finalists have just one week from Thursday 28th November – Thursday 5th December to gain as many views as possible on their YouTube footage of their Open Mic UK Regional Final performances to progress in the Unsigned Songwriting Contest. The four songwriters with the most views on their YouTube footage within that time frame will progress into the next round of the Unsigned Songwriting Contest - the Semi Finals!

Check out the quarter finalist songwriters that are taking part in the Unsigned Songwriting Contest on this Quarter Final Songwriting Contest Playlist.

Unsigned Songwriting Contest – Quarter Finals

The four winning acts taken from each of the two Semi Finals of the Unsigned Songwriting Contest will have their singles released! The overall songwriter winner of the Unsigned Songwriting Contest will be the act who achieves the highest chart position in the UNSIGNED charts!

The winner of the Unsigned Songwriting Contest will also receive studio time and a mini festival tour of a range of festivals, which in previous years has included Beach Break Live, Watchet, Boardmasters and Isle of Wight Festival. (These festivals will be dependent on partnerships agreed for 2014 and the genre of the winning act).

Please remember, votes will be calculated on all views over 30 seconds on your video. We will monitor any unusual viewing patterns and we reserve the right to disqualify any acts that have shown suspicious activity.
