****DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, THE COMPETITION IS NOW ALSO OPEN TO SOLO ARTISTS!****
Oh shit London. It doesn’t get much better than this. Being official supporters of Ladyfest Ten, and super-keen advocates of young ladies picking up an instrument and making some noise, we are launching a battle of the bands competition, for which the grand prize is a live slot at Ladyfest Ten in November!
The winner of Just A Girl will be playing alongside some incredible names (if I told you, I’d have to kill you) and will not only receive radio airplay, but will also feature as part of a Ladyfest Ten documentary. Becoming giddy with excitement? Well hold your horses, it gets even better. All entrants will be judged by both the girls are readers AND a panel of expert judges, comprising yours truly (Founder & Editor, thegirlsare.com), RUTH BARNES (The Other Woman radio), CAMILLA PIA (Live Editor, The Fly), CHARLOTTE RICHARDSON ANDREWS (Wears The Trousers) and none other than VIV ALBERTINE (Musician, Artist, The Slits).
So, what do you have to do to enter this ASTOUNDING competition? Climb Everest? Kill a puppy? Pledge your entire future life-savings? Thankfully it’s a lot easier than that. Simply read through the following points:
– Artists must pay a £10 non-refundable entry fee (which will be donated to Ladyfest Ten), and submit an Mp3, JPEG and band bio to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 Sept 2010.
– Your band Jpeg
– You will be notified about whether or not you have made the shortlist on 21 Sept.
Good luck, and we look forward to hearing from you!
