The festival will not be running a Song Contest for 2022.
The Noel Brazil Contemporary Songwriting Competition
This competition has been growing since we first kicked it off back in 2013, so if you write your own music then please get in touch and enter the competition.
The rules are simple:
1. it has to be your song or your song played by someone you know.
2. The song must be played live with no more than one accompanist.
