HARLOW MP Robert Halfon is inviting musicians and filmmakers of Harlow to enter Parliament’s two biggest creative competitions, Rock the House and Film the House, by 31st December.
The annual competitions, founded by Mike Weatherly MP, raise awareness of the importance of Intellectual Property and allow Harlow artists to showcase their talents to prominent industry figures.
Local musicians and filmmakers will have their work judged by leading people in the industry in this pioneering opportunity.
Prizes include studio time, festival slots, equipment and having work premiered in the West End.
Mr Halfon said: “I welcome the return of Parliament’s most hotly contested competitions, and would urge all local musicians and filmmakers to enter Rock the House and Film the House.
This is an excellent opportunity for Harlow to celebrate our local talent and, as all nominations are judged by industry experts, there is no finer chance for our musicians and filmmakers to gain exposure.”
Rock legend and actor, Alice Cooper said: “Rock the House is a great project which celebrates the fantastic diversity of the British music scene and gives musicians a vehicle through which to hold their legislators accountable about protecting the music industry’s intellectual property.”
Dates for the 2015 competitions are:
• 31 December 2014, closing date for entries to MPs
• 1 February 2015, closing date for MPs to announce their constituency nominations
