The Highland Uproar Music Challenge has now closed.
I would like to thank everyone who has entered from right across the globe. We had many difficult decisions to make as there were alot of tie breakers and to shortlist the final 10 for the listener final which will take place from Tuesday 19th July until Friday 5th August However due to the amount of entries it has been decided we take 12 through to the listener final. The Winner of the competition will be announced on the Great Northern Radio Show Special which will replace The Highland Uproar with Chris Grant on Saturday 6th August with Martin Mackillop.
I would like to thank everyone involved with the competition, The four judges - Steve Amos, Kyle Mccoll, Martin Mackillop and Rob Saunders. I would like to thank Rob Saunders again for the provision of the promotion package to be won. I would also like to thank Colin Munro and Richy Gray for sponsoring the Trophy. I would also like to give a massive thanks to Ruth in the Cuillin FM office who has been fantastic including Hector Cormack, Drew Millar and Jim Lawson for their continued support throughout the last few weeks.
I now can reveal your finalists.
Sara Bills and the Hasbeens

You will be able to listen to the tracks on the Cuillin FM website very soon and on the Highland Uproar on the 23rd July and 30th July (Please note both shows are repeated on Thursdays).
