Song for Carnivale
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 at www.carnivale.com.au.
