The competition is open to all ages, abilities and genre of act (space permitting).

Each act has a time limit of 10 minutes and may use that 10 minutes however they would like.

Singers will need to email their backing tracks to David before the day of their heat: david@daviddays.co.uk.

Musicians may bring their own instruments or use the acoustic guitar or piano keyboard provided.

Full PA will be provided with two hand-held radio mics.  A head mic is also available on request.

A panel of judges will choose two acts from each heat to go through to the final; the audience will vote for a third act to go through.

The winner of the final will receive £500 and a free studio recording of one of their songs.

(If a non-musical act wins, they will receive £500 and a promo video of their act.)

In the final, the judges will choose their three favourite acts and the audience will vote for their favourite of those three.

The studio time will be agreed between David Days and the winning act; the studio time must be claimed during 2020.
