General information

Contest related forms and information for all contestants

Later on in the year Songsheet submission forms (for you to declare what you are going to sing, including copyright information) will be added on this page for convention competitors, as well as the latest contest timetables and contestant briefings.

Contest Rules

Contest rules - Make sure you know 'em so you don't break 'em!

Contest & Judging Handbook - Including category descriptions detailing what judges are looking for. Why would you want to remain in the dark?
 
 

Other convention-related forms and useful information for LABBS members

Soundcheck chorus - in Autumn 2022 LABBS members will be able to sign up for a scratch chorus/stage time on the Thursday evening before convention. This is intended primarily for chorus representatives to see what the acoustics are like and report back to the rest of their chorus.  Spaces are limited per chorus (initially a maximum of 2), so every competing chorus has a chance to take part and feed back this valuable information.

Score histories - Look up what you scored in previous years and track your progress (or use to look for song ideas!).

Scoring summaries - Written by LABBS judges, a handy guide to skillsets usually experienced at each level and what you might need to work on and improve, to become better singers and performers and score higher in contest.

Trophies & Awards - A guide to the trophies and awards on offer in LABBS contests and the criteria for each.
