Taking a stand: search for a short form song

Deadline: 15 May 2018

The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada

In anticipation of the Hymn Society’s 2018 conference, “Sacred Song and the Public Square”, the Hymn Society’s Executive Committee has announced a search for a new song, to be premiered at the Society’s 2018 conference in St. Louis, Missouri.

“This search honours the role that sacred song has played in uniting people to stand against injustice and seek positive change in their communities. An effective entry in this search will provide a singable, short form song in the style of the oral tradition.”

This search is for a new song, both text and tune, in short form.

A prize of $500 will be offered to the winning entry. The awarding of any prize money is conditional upon the assignment of copyright to The Hymn Society.

Further details and instructions for submitting an entry may be found on The Hymn Society website.
