Submit your nominations for the 2019 UKBlues Challenge

We invite you to select the three acts that you feel would best represent the UK at the 10th European Blues Challenge (EBC) in the Netherlands and the 36th International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, USA which will take place in 2020. 

Please place your choices in order (first, second, third) and we will award points according to the position in which the acts are placed by you.

Before making your choices, please take time to have a look at and a listen to the previous winners to get a good feel for the sort of acts that seem to do well at the European Blues Challenge.  

You can do this by clicking on this link you will find on the Challenge page of the UKBlues Federation website 

When making your selections, please bear in mind the following EBC rules which apply:

At least 50% of the members of the bands must have the nationality of and reside in the country they represent.
Acts who participated in a previous edition of the EBC, but did not win, may not compete again until 3 years after their original participation
UK bands not eligible for selection in view of this three year rule are:

Kyla Brox Band
LaVendore Rogue
Kaz Hawkins Band/Kaz Hawkins

Any band/artist nominated that does not meet these criteria will be disqualified. The decision of the UKBlues Federation in this respect is final.
Contestants at the EBC are awarded points using the following criteria:

Instrumental talent
Vocal talent
Stage presence
Blues content
Please bear in mind these judging criteria and rules when making your nominations and please think hard about your nominations. Remember we are looking for artists/bands that will do well at the two Challenges, not necessarily just your three favourites!

Any incomplete submissions will be ignored as will any duplicate/multiple submissions.

The closing date for submission of your three choices is midnight GMT on the 25th February 2019.
