• People's Choice Song Competition

    Entries have now closed

    SCALAs first ever People’s Choice Song Competition will be held at the Wheatsheaf Hotel on Thursday 20 December 2018.


    The cash prizes in this People’s Choice competition will be $250 (first place), $150 (second place) and $100 (third place).
    There will be no judges for this competition - the audience will have 1 total vote based on the performances
    during the night and the prizes will be announced and awarded at the end of the evening.


    This is a new initiative from SCALA as part of our mission to increase exposure for our songwriters'
    new material and encourage audiences to participate in the appreciation of original song writing.


    Please keep in mind that this is a new undertaking for SCALA.
    If it is successful we will certainly hold subsequent People’s Choice Song Competitions and,
    if your song doesn’t make it into the current competition, we will consider it for future competitions should we hold them.


    If you are chosen to perform on Thursday 20 December 2018, remember that the more fans you bring, the bigger your chance to win!


    Be at the Wheaty by 8pm on Dec 20th to see these guys fly. And cast your vote!


    Congratulations go to the following song writers who were chosen as finalists for this song competition:


    Ben Searcy, Fergus Maximus, Mallory Steele, Stuart Day, Jaime Willson, Jessica Rae, Chooka Parker, Iron Dwarf, Nick West,
    Eleanor Meegan, Emma Knights, Stafford Marsland, Mell Preusker, Ricardo Da Silva, Elaine McLaughlin


    The People’s Choice Competition is our last celebratory SCALA event for the year and what a bang we’re going out on.
    Space is limited and everyone must have a ticket including members (one FREE ticket per SCALA member or $10 each) so jump the queue and get your ticket now at: https://www.trybooking.com/YZIF
