Shit off everyone, April 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the escChat Song Contest and, of course, this momentous occasion warrants its own special recognition… but what form should this recognition take? Naturally it will be a retrospective of, and an hommage* to, the past 10 years and so should incorporate songs and reflections of members’ time here, but it needs to be a truly special event and, inclusive as the site is, we need your ideas as to how to make it special. What format should any celebratory contest take? It has been suggested, however the entries are determined, it should be a ‘live’ event, but how should the entries be determined? One suggestion has been that they should be revamped/different versions of songs that have already been sent; what ideas do you have as to how the songs - celebrating 10 years of the contest - should be selected? Please give the matter due consideration and share your ideas here. It may seem like ages away, but the time will soon pass and a great deal of work will be needed in order to produce the spectacular event the occasion deserves, so don’t delay! *I have looked into this. I want it to be ‘om-ahzh’. I think you ‘pay hommidge to’ and have ‘an om-ahzh’. It seems that (affectation though this may be) this should be spelt in the French way.
