The music scene hasn’t had an opportunity in the UK music scene for a while. Salute will be a very welcome songwriting competition for British artists. The platform is a more authentic alternative to the likes of X-Factor and The Voice. The winner will receive a £50,000 cash prize. The 5 other shortlisted finalists will each receive £10,000. No strings attached.
The songwriting competition from Salute isn’t restricted to one specific genre of music. Furthermore, the distribution and reach of Salute’s network is impressive. They have connections all across Social Media (including Unilad) and Digital TV. The purpose of the competition is to support the upcoming generation of songwriters and music makers. The cash prizes will be given to the winners. Entrants will be paid through PRS when their music is played throughout the competition.
Feargal Sharkey, the face of Salute, said. “Songwriters provide and always have provided the heartbeat for any piece of music. And yet songwriters are often, and justifiably, very vocal about how they are treated by online companies, lack of transparency, confusing payments systems, lack of respect. Today that changes. It’s time that unsigned songwriters get what they deserve, payment”.
