ABBEY ROAD ANTHEM CONTEST

Abbey Road Studios is still searching for original, unsigned and undiscovered composers of all ages until July 15th, as part of its worldwide anthem competition in celebration of the studios' 80th anniversary. Up to ten anthems will be selected and winners will join generations of legendary composers who have recorded their work at Abbey Road Studios. The prize is a recording of their work in Abbey Road's Studio One with some of the UK's finest singers and the London Symphony Orchestra.

Abbey Road Studios Anthem Competition

To enter the competition, composers need to write an anthem to be performed by a choir. The work can be in any style, and your demo just needs to give a flavour of the song and could be with real voices or simply a midi representation.  Any arrangement is fine - if the demo doesn't involve orchestra we will look to see whether the music will work in an orchestral context. The winning entries could be simply a capella or involve any combination of instruments, not neccessarily orchestral.

Composers retain all copyright and are free to release their own recordings of their music. All the entries are judged by a team from Abbey Road who will select a shortlist which will be given to the main jury, who will receive the entries without names, simply numbered and they will then decide our eventual winners. We expect to have over 300 entries by the closing date in July - we've been so impressed by the standard and passion of the entries we've received so far - it has been a fascinating and rewarding competition to hold.

The final deadline for entries is 6.00pm GMT on Friday July 15th.
