The songwriting competition is back for 2022! It’s open to all, amateur or professional, in any musical style that can be performed acoustically. Winning songs will be performed on the open stage in The Basin Triangle on Sunday 20 March.

The judging panel shall be as nominated by The Basin Music Festival Committee. The judges’ decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
For Best Song (Open) – a Sachar Amos handmade acoustic guitar for the winner of the songwriting contest at The Basin Music Festival.
For Best Youth Song (Under 18 yrs at 8 March 2022) $300 cash.
Prizes will be awarded at the sole discretion of the judges in two categories, Open and Youth (under 18 years old)
Entry fee - $20.00 per song
