We will name 12 finalists. Out of these 12, a second round of judges will choose three to play at the August 27, 2002 Folk Fest in La Crosse, WI. The winner will be announced and will open for last year’s winner later in the day.
Top finisher will receive $150 and 8 hour’s studio time with Soundstrations. Second and Third finishers will receive $75 (see details below). Top 3 finishers must attend the fest to win an Award. If a finalist is selected as a top finisher but cannot attend, the next highest placed of the 12 finalists will be invited.
Entries will be evaluated based on melody, composition progression, originality, and lyrics. YouTube videos are preferred to allow for us to share in our weekly highlights blog which will promote your music as well. The winner will be based on performance the day of the festival where each contestant will play two songs
