A ROTHERHAM college is set to host its second battle of the bands to unearth new talents.
Rotherham College of Arts and Technology is hosting another Ballot of the Bands contest after last autumn’s competition proved popular.
The winner of the competition, run by the college's Roland Music Academy, will have the opportunity to have an internationally-distributed single release and a supporting artist slot at Sheffield's O2 Academy.
The event will give aspiring bands within the region the chance to rock out against the competition in front of a live audience who will then be asked to vote via a ballot for their favourite performance.
The heats will be held in selected locations around South Yorkshire.
To qualify, entrants are required to submit a demo recording plus their band name and contact information via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 16.
Entrants must be aged 14 and over.
All demo entries will be reviewed by a panel of music industry professionals who will inform selected bands that they have been chosen to perform in one of the competition heats.
The most successful band from each heat will then go on to compete at the live final at Sheffield's O2 Academy on Thursday, July 8.
