Terms and Conditions of Entry
The following terms and conditions are to be read as part of the
WAPI Song Lyric Contest 2013 Entry Form
The WAPI Song Lyric Contest is part of the 2013 WA Poetry Festival and is coordinated by WA Poets Inc. (WAPI) at their discretion. A panel with considerable experience in music and poetry will be responsible for judging entries. All entries will be judged anonymously: the Judging Panel will not know the names of the entrants. The names of the Judging Panel will not be revealed to entrants until the presentation of the prizes.
The first prize is $200 cash. Second and third prizes may be awarded at the discretion of the Judging Panel and will consist of books and other publications donated by other sponsors of the Festival. The WAPI Song Lyric Contest is open to writers from anywhere and is subject to a fee of $10 per entry or three entries for $25, an entry consisting of one song lyric. Members of the Committee of WA Poets Inc. and the Judging Panel are not eligible to enter.
Entry fees are not refundable. Writers may submit more than one entry. An entry form including entrant contact details and payment must accompany each entry. Entries without accompanying payment will be excluded from the contest.
The contest is for song lyrics only — music is not required. The song lyrics must be the original work of the writers, and must not be the subject of a publishing deal. All copyright remains with the writers. Entrants must not infringe on existing copyright. In signing the entry form the contestant agrees that WAPI is not responsible for any such infringement that may occur and indemnifies WAPI against any legal action that may arise as a result of any breaches of copyright.
All entries must be submitted on line, contained in the body of an email, sent to <firstname.lastname@example.org> with Song lyric contest entry in the subject line. Please do not send attachments. Attachments will not be read.
The deadline for entries is midnight Western Australian time, Sunday 21st July 2013.
WAPI accepts no responsibility for entries that are late, lost or misdirected, nor is WAPI responsible in any way for entries that are stolen or misappropriated.
Prizes will be awarded at the Festival Launch, 8pm, Thursday 15th August at the Cheeky Sparrow, Wolfe Lane, Perth, off King Street, between Hay and Murray Streets. All prizewinners agree to read or sing their lyrics on stage or have a proxy read or sing on their behalf on this night.
All prizewinners agree to have their lyrics posted online at <wapoets.net.au>. Entries which are highly commended by the judging panel may also be published.
