Calling for Juries 2017

We’re calling for Juries in each of the 53 countries eligible to enter into the Pacific Song Competition. The list of countries is here – List of eligible Countries.

We need at least three people (with a maximum of eleven) from each country to act as the jury to help us select the best song in the region over the next 6 months.

To be a juror, you need to be more than eighteen years old.  For the full details of the Jury eligibility rules – Jury Rules.

It would also help us to select you if you had some musical background or interest, but this isn’t a pre-requisite.

If you’d like to be a juror in your country and assist us with this amazing and worthwhile community project, please send your reasons for wanting to be a juror and your resume or biography to Admin@Pacific.SongCompetition.net

Finally, just before you do that, please look over the rules of the Competition here – Competition Rules. Our current Jurors and judges can be found here – Juries 2017.

We look forward to having you on board and to listening to many great songs over the next few months.

The Pacific Song Competition management committee will contact you as necessary, once you have applied, and we will need to finalising the juries by the end of October 2017.

We will be calling for song entries from March 2017. Thank you for being a part of the Pacific Song Competition.

Welcome to the Pacific Song Competition

Hello Everybody.

The PSC is all about assisting and showcasing young creative performing talent around our region.  That region is from New Zealand and Australia in the south-west, up through Asia to Japan and Russia at the north-west, across to Canada and the US in the north-east, down through the Americas to Chile in the south-east.  It’s also called the Pacific Rim, otherwise known as the Ring of Fire and is bordered by 53 countries – see the list of Eligible Countries here – and as it’s Fiery name suggests we’re hoping for some really way out, awesome acts to liven up the show.

Hone up your writing, singing or performing skills, we’ll be calling for Judging Jury members shortly and then Entries a little after that – see our 2015 Timeline for dates.  We’ll be asking each country’s talent to put in your best song, via YouTube, then each country’s voting jury AND the residents will pick the best song from each country to enter into the finals, ending up with a winner.

The Pacific Song Competition is hosted by Talent Storm Pty Ltd – you can email us at admin@pacific.songcompetition.net and we look forward to seeing all you can do!
