2015 Song Competition

Craig Allan Hughes 2014 Competition Winner

Following the success of the 2014 competition for the Forth Road Bridge we have once again teamed up with the Academy of Music and Sound to create the Forth Bridges Live song competition 2015.

Throughout time, musicians and songwriters from all over Scotland have created music to celebrate an eclectic variety of occasions and points in history, but surprisingly there are very few tracks that feature what some call the 8th wonder of the modern world, Scotland's most iconic structure…oor Forth Bridge!

We believe there is a wealth of talent out there and so to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of our mighty Bridge we want you to pen a track that features or is about The Forth Bridge.

The competition is open to anyone aged 14 or over.

Winners will receive an exclusive trip up the Forth Bridge and a unique Forth Bridge Award courtesy of Network Rail along with the opportunity to perform their track live at the festival.
