The Paul Mitchell Award – Musicality

The Paul Mitchell Award – Musicality

To mark the 1 year anniversary of Val’s dearest friend and her musical mentor Paul passing away, she has decided to start a yearly award in his memory.

Paul taught Val everything she knows about music production, recording techniques, arrangement and mixing, he took Val under his wing and kindly shared his knowledge and expertise with enthusiasm and excitement without asking for anything in return.

Val would like to carry on his legacy with the Paul Mitchell Award, a yearly award that will give 1 local young songwriter/lyricist the possibility to have one of their songs professionally produced, recorded and arranged for free.

To enter the contest you must be between 15 and 25 years old and live in Southend Borough. Please send your lyrics to

DEADLINE – 30th of April 2023
