The MOBO Awards have announced the return of their national UnSung initiative, which looks to provide a platform for new talent for 2016.

Fronted by Lady Leshurr and Ghetts, the UnSung competition will look to inspire new artists by offering them the chance to win year-round guidance, including studio time, touring opportunities, opening the doors to develop contacts and more. Whether you’re a singer, songwriter, producer, rapper or poet, the UnSung competition is definitely one you need to explore – last year’s winners Mic Lowry have already had a phenomenal 12 months, and with further support from the likes of 1Xtra’s Sian Anderson alongside Carla Marie-Williams and Fraser T Smith, it’s clear this is one heck of a solid platform to get your work onto the next level.

Budding artists can enter MOBO UnSung by submitting their music at by 8th August. Check the video below to find out more:
