CAROLINE CALLS FOR MUSICIANS AND FILM MAKERS TO ENTER THE ROCK THE HOUSE AND FILM THE HOUSE COMPETITIONS

Local MP Caroline Dinenage is supporting musicians and film-makers from Gosport by calling for local artists to enter Parliament's two largest creative competitions, Rock the House and Film the House.

The annual competitions offer the opportunity to put local musicians and film-makers in direct contact with the movers and shakers of the two industries, and to have the best of Gosport's talent take front and centre stage. Judged by the leading lights of industry, with prizes ranging from festival slots, studio time, top-notch equipment, and your work premiered in London's West End, the Rock the House and Film the House competitions are a pioneering opportunity to showcase what Gosport has to offer, raising awareness about the importance of Intellectual property (IP) to our creative industries and country.

Commenting, Caroline said:

"I welcome the return of Parliament's most-hotly contested competitions, and would urge all local musicians and film-makers to enter Rock the House and Film the House. This is an excellent opportunity for Gosport to celebrate our local talent and, as all nominations are judged by industry experts, there is no finer chance for our musicians and film-makers to gain exposure."

The closing dates for entries to MPs is 31 December 2014, while the finals will take place on the 18th March 2015 in the House of Commons.
