BBC’s Songs of Praise Youth Choir of the Year Competition

The 2020 competition is now open for entries and aims to find the best amateur Young Choirs in the UK. It’s your chance to shine!

BBC Songs of Praise warmly welcome applications from youth, community, church, school and gospel choirs. In fact, any choir can enter as long as you’re of the right age (see Terms and Conditions below).

All choirs who submit an entry will receive feedback from the shortlisting judges, whether they go through to the televised part of the competition or not.

The finals will be filmed during Spring at a venue to be confirmed.

The Junior and Senior finalists will sing in front of the audience (including family and friends) and the television cameras!
