Song for Car­ni­vale

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

CALL­ING all musos - Car­ni­vale needs you.

Ra­dio Port Dou­glas and Car­ni­vale have again joined forces to find an orig­i­nal song for the 10-day fes­ti­val.

The com­pe­ti­tion is a plat­form for song­writ­ers and mu­si­cians to get their mu­sic out into the pub­lic arena.

Ra­dio Port Dou­glas DJ and mu­si­cian Kim Hur­ley said the com­pe­ti­tion, won last year by Moss­man State High School stu­dent Kevin Car­ring­ton, was a great way for lo­cal mu­si­cians to get in­volved in Car­ni­vale and launch their mu­sic ca­reer.

‘‘ We’re look­ing for­ward to get­ting en­tries that cap­ture the essence of Car­ni­vale and life in the trop­ics, that also has a really catchy hook or cho­rus,’’ she said.

‘‘The win­ning song will be used across TV and ra­dio to pro­mote Car­ni­vale.

‘‘ The ad­ver­tise­ments will be aired across Queens­land, not just lo­cally, and rep­re­sents a tremen­dous op­por­tu­nity for mu­si­cians to gain ex­po­sure across the state.’’

Heats will be held on April 9 at the Cen­tral Ho­tel, with the en­try dead­line at 5pm on April 5.

Judges will record the per­for­mances of all con­tes­tants and will de­cide the top three.

The win­ner will be de­ter­mined by the pub­lic who will be able to vote on the Ra­dio Port Dou­glas Face­book page.

De­tails and en­try forms can be found at­ni­
