Glinsk Song Contest has arrived at its 23rd year.  Indeed, each year the support of Songwriters has grown.  We thank all of you for such sustained and continuous support throughout the years.

Whether you are a budding songwriter or an established composer – its time to put that pen to paper for this year’s event.   Our finalists over the years have made the final a thrilling event each year – Perhaps you could be one of those finalists this year!
Glinsk Song Contest attracts a huge variety of styles and themes among our entries each year and all are welcome.  We believe our Contest is one of the easiest to enter as all we require is a CD, cassette tape or mini-disc of your song plus two copies of the lyrics. [If possible, enclose a simple chord sheet]
If your song is one of the thirteen chosen for the final on Sunday 4th July, then Glinsk Song Contest will do all the arrangements etc for you.  You must provide a singer of your own choice who will be accompanied by the Glinsk Song Contest orchestra.
Don’t forget the CLOSING DATE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO APRIL 23rd.  We look forward to your entry over the next few weeks – Let Glinsk Song Contest be your ‘shop-window’ this year.  Remember we want this to be your Song Contest…. Glinsk Song Contest is the oldest and biggest Song Contest in Ireland….Make it your contest this year!!
Glinsk Song Contest acknowledges the generous  support of IMRO over the years.
Without the support of IMRO – Glinsk Song Contest could not have survived.

Best Wishes,
