COLORADO BLUES SOCIETY’S BEST SELF-PRODUCED COMPETITION

The Colorado Blues Society is looking for parties interested in competing for the “Best Self-Produced CD” (BSPCD) of the year. Where the IBC is the measure of excellence for a band’s live performance, the Best Self Produced CD award honors artists that have achieved excellence in the studio. Acts can be bands, solo acts, duo acts, trios, full choirs or any other combination. The purpose of this award is to assist Blues musicians in the pursuit of their professional goals. In 2009, the Colorado Blues Society submitted the Informants “Crime Scene Queen” which went on to take 1st place in the Blues Foundation National Awards!

* Entries for the Best Self-Produced CD are permitted by affiliated blues societies only. * Each affiliate is permitted one entry only. * The CD entered does not have to be performed by the band entered in the International Blues Challenge. * The eligibility period is the same as for the Blues Music Awards-the CD must have been released during November 1, 2014 – October 31, 2015 time frame.

A panel of judges will judge the CDs on the following criteria: 1) Blues Content, 2) Musical Performance, 3)Audio Quality of the Presentation, 4) Cover Art and Design, and 5) Credits and Liner Information. Compilations are not eligible. Singer, band, society or local producer may produce the actual CD as long as the performer is a singer, band or other individual entity. Recordings with established or “known” producers within the industry are eligible as long as the recording is on the artist’s independent label and not on an established national blues label.

Deadline for the local competition is September 20. This will allow us to evaluate the entries, select a winner and get 4 copies to Memphis by their deadline (Nov. 1, 2015). If you are interested in competing in the BSPCD please contact chick1951@hotmail.com for further details. There is no entry fee, however you will need to supply CBS with 3 copies of your CD for the local competition. If your CD wins the local CBS contest, we will need 4 more sealed copies to send to Memphis.
