I am supporting musicians and film-makers from Flintshire by calling for local artists to enter Parliament’s two largest creative competitions, Rock the House and Film the House.
The competition, now in its fifth year, offers the opportunity to put local musicians and film-makers in direct contact with the movers and shakers of the two industries and to have the best of Flintshire’s talent take front and centre stage. Judged by the leading lights of industry, with prizes ranging from festival slots, studio time and top-notch equipment, the Rock the House and Film the House competitions are a pioneering opportunity to showcase what Flintshire has to offer, raising awareness about the importance of Intellectual property (IP) to our creative industries and country.
Dates for the 2016 competitions are:
1st May, closing date for entries to MPs
31st May, closing date for MPs to announce their constituency nominations
20th June, final battle of the bands
4th July, awards ceremony
I welcome the return of Parliament’s most-hotly contested competitions, and would urge all local musicians and film-makers to enter Rock the House and Film the House. This is an excellent opportunity for Flintshire to celebrate our local talent and, as all nominations are judged by industry experts, there is no finer chance for our musicians and film-makers to gain exposure.

“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.”
