Jack Petchy Anthem Competition Launch

The Jack Petchy Foundation are delighted to announce the launch of our 21st Birthday Anthem Competition, a song-writing competition designed to reach young people looking for a creative outlet during the current lockdown.

The competition is free to enter and open to anyone aged 11-25 across London and Essex. This is an exciting opportunity to write and record an inspiring song to celebrate young people and to look towards a positive future. We hope that the competition will not only appeal to young people who are involved in music, but also reach those who have harboured a desire to write music but have never had the confidence to do it. The competition will run between 8th June – 31st July, where after 5 shortlisted entries will receive online feedback from an industry professional  before honing their entry which will be then judged by a select panel of judges including Ruti Olajugbagbe, winner of The Voice UK 2018, and Ashley Singh an accomplished solo artist and previous Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner.

The winning singer/group will be awarded £2000 to be spent on music equipment or towards a music project/study costs, the opportunity to record their track in a professional studio and will be invited to take part in a collaborative performance of their song at one of our high profile events (subject to the removal of government restrictions).

Second place will be awarded £650 and third place £350 to be spent on music equipment or towards a music project/study costs.
