Alternative / Indie

Alternative Music is often underground rock / pop that has an original sound. It is cutting edge and will often feature guitars.

Indie subculture music that is independent of major producers. The term indie refers to a style of music that is subversive with an unpredictable style thus suitable to an independent record label and individual taste rather than smoother pop orientated styles.

We are looking for:

  1. Relevance to the category
  2. delivery of composition
  3. alternative style and production techniques
  4. innovative lyricism and instrumentation

Although recording quality and production values are not governing factors in this category, we expect a reasonable standard. A strong piece will be severely hampered by either poor delivery or recording. The winning piece will be the one which best meets these requirements.

Entries are locked into category whether they are suitable or not. If an entry is incorrectly placed then it will be excluded from the marking process.

If there are not enough entries in a category that you have entered to go ahead you will be contacted and given the choice receive a refund or if we can successfully contact you by the 9th of September 2017 we will offer you the opportunity to enter the same song into a different category that meets the criteria.
