To enter the Music category, you can either write a song or musical composition of no more than 5 minutes.

To enter, upload your entry to YouTube or SoundCloud or similar social media. Complete the application form on this website and submit it to the Young Creative Awards, include the link to your music, with the completed application form and a copy of the lyrics (if it is a song), or short explanation (if it is an instrumental composition). As with all YCA categories, entries are judged within three age groups: 11-15, 16-18 and 19-24.
