The Cân i Gymru 2014 song writing competition is now open.
The prize: £3,500
Closing date: 5.30pm Wednesday 8 January, 2014.
The six shortlisted composers will receive £900 to pay for studio time and work with a producer of their choice to prepare the song for the final.
The final will be held in the spring, 2014, and broadcast on S4C.
The 2013 winners were Rhys Gwynfor and Osian Huw Williams, with the band Jessops a'r Sgweiri with the song 'Mynd i Gorwen Efo Alys'.
"I'm pleased that the competition has stuck to last year's format. It attracts people who wouldn't usually enter the competition – like we did last year," says Rhys Gwynfor.
"Cân i Gymru was a brilliant platform to get our name out there and we've played loads of gigs during the year. We have another four booked now before Christmas and in the New Year we'll record our first album."
