40th Anniversary Composing Competition - Closing date 30th April 2023

The committee has decided to hold a composing competition as but one element to mark the Society’s 40th anniversary.

Tunes submitted should have at least four parts and be in the Lowland idiom. The name of the tune shall be, ‘The Lowland & Border Pipers’ Society’.

Please email compositions to LBPS Treasurer, Bridget Taylor - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - and pay the £10 entry fee using the Entry Form below.
Please send entries in by Sunday, 30th April 2023. 

Entries will be collated and sent to the judges with the composers’ names deleted. A recording of the composition is not a requirement but is encouraged. The winner will receive £400 plus a full run of the LBPS’ music collections and CDs.

A distinguished panel of respected individuals in Lowland piping and Scottish culture will adjudicate and the tune will receive its first airing at an LBPS event later this year.

Copyright of the tunes will remain with the composers but by entering the competition, entrants grant the LBPS permission to distribute and publish the tune in all media (whether now existing or the future invented) anywhere throughout the universe for all time.
