It was/is a remarkable opportunity for artists to experience record production at its best: great studios, engineers and staff, all operating at full potential, inspired to create and contribute. Truly, an exceptional experience."

How it Works

There are 2 Rounds to the competition. Everyone who enters automatically qualifies for Round 1. Two of our expert judges will listen to your track and decide whether you proceed to Round 2. All the artists making it through to Round 2 will then have their tracks voted on by 5 judges. The combined scores will decide the 30 finalists. In The Final, these artists will be voted on by all judges and the 3 artists with the highest combined scores will be crowned 2017 winners. These 3 winning artists will be flown out to Ireland for the 14 day recording session.
