Jamie Reed MP calls for musicians and film makers to enter Rock the House and Film the House
Copeland MP, Jamie Reed, calls for musicians and film makers to enter Parliament’s largest competitions, Rock the House and Film the House.
Founded by Intellectual Property Advisor to the Prime Minister, Mike Weatherley MP, the competitions are sponsored by industry and supported by celebrity Patrons. Both competitions offer the opportunity for Copeland’s creatives to have their work judged by the leading lights of industry and win prizes ranging from festival slots, studio time, equipment, and the opportunity to have your work premiered in London’s West End, to name a few.
Jamie Reed MP said:
“I urge all local musicians and filmmakers in Copeland to enter Rock the House and Film the House. The prizes are impressive and as all nominations will be judged by industry experts. It is a fantastic opportunity for exposure.”
Rock legend Alice Cooper said:
“Rock the House is a great project which celebrates the fantastic diversity of the British music scene and gives musicians a vehicle through which to hold their legislators accountable about protecting the music industry’s intellectual property.”
Competition Founder Mike Weatherley MP said:
“Every year the competition gets bigger and better and my thanks go to our Patrons, Sponsors, Judges, the entrants, the MPs who take part. If you’re a musician or a film maker, make sure you take part in the 2014 competition!”
Founded by Mike Weatherley MP, Rock The House and Film The House are Parliamentary competitions which raise awareness of the importance of protecting intellectual property rights among legislators and the general public.
Musicians and film makers enter their original material to their MP, who ultimately nominates one entrant per competition category. A panel of industry executives presides over choosing the finalists and winners, who go on to have their pieces played in Parliament and win an array of prizes, from equipment, festival slots, exposure, recording sessions, radio and TV airplay and more.
The competitions give Parliamentarians an opportunity to engage with a grass-roots creative demographic, and provide the creative community with a vehicle through which to communicate their issues to legislators. They provide a means for the UK creative industries to communicate the importance of protecting its intellectual property rights in a fun manner which gives a foundation for Parliamentarians to protect creative output.
