Have you ever heard a song on the radio and thought you could have done a better job? Perhaps you’ve had something happen to you and thought if you wrote about it, it could make a killer track? There are plenty of singer-songwriters out there at the moment making a name for themselves, from the likes of Hannah Grace to Emily Warren – and we’ve found an opportunity for you to become just like them.
It’s your chance to Write and Shine! The Write and Shine competition is organised by BIC with YouTuber and TV Presenter (4Music Chart Show) Bethan Leadley, who was recently part of the #YouTubers4Grenfell live stream fundraiser. It’s all about creative people putting pen to paper.
What’s the prize?
Make sure you’re free for the week of 21st August, as you’ll be whisked away for a week to go behind the scenes in the music industry. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with producers, songwriters, musicians and more in a recording studio. Fancy.
BIC will even shoot a short film of the entire experience, which will be released on Bethan’s YouTube channel along with YOUR professionally produced single!
Not only that, but the winner will get their song professionally produced and recorded in a studio and performed in front of thousands on the Main Stage at The Big Feastival. Headlining The Big Feastival are acts such as Olly Murs, Hacienda Classical, Ella Eyre, Louisa Johnson and loads more.

Don’t worry if you can’t sing – this is all about your creative writing skills. All you have to do is write an original song, record a video of you performing or reading the lyrics and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 16th of July.
