Information that was used in the preparation of this years competition

Follow this link for copies of the 2013-2014 Guidelines and Information for Competitors. Your first move should be to promote the Competition to Heads of Music in secondary Schools, Scout and Guide Groups, and any other connections available to you to identify likely Competitors.  

If you have insufficient Competitors to make a viable competition at your Club, you can

  • Form a judgment (with expert advice if necessary) as to whether the proposed entrant is of a sufficient standard
  • Hold a Competition among local Clubs to identify a Competitor in each category to represent that group of Clubs
  • Hold a musical event among a group of local Clubs with a view to identifying young musicians to represent each participating Club
