How To Enter
Entrants simply need to visit eononetake.uk, register and upload an original song performed by themselves that is no longer than three minutes in duration, consisting of a vocal and single instrument track. The song will then be uploaded onto the contest wall and the entrant will have their recording hosted on their own competition page, from there it can be shared across social platforms to obtain as many votes as possible.
Qualifying For The Live Phase
The top 40 voted entries will win an AKG P5i microphone and move through to the live phase of the competition. Qualifiers visit their chosen local retailer to record their song live in "ONE TAKE" in the EON ONE recording pod. Each performance will be filmed and uploaded to the competition site, where the song will be judged by an elite panel including producer Steve Levine and Russell Deeks the Editor of Songwriting Magazine.
The judges will select 10 runners up, who will receive a pair of AKG K702 headphones, and a Grand Prize winner who will receive the ultimate prize of a JBL EON ONE Portable PA system and a day recording and mixing with former BPI Producer of The Year, Steve Levine, at the influential Strongroom Studios in London.
