Tim in WestminsterSouth Lakes MP Tim Farron is calling 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 Edinburg's creative minds 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!

Commenting, Tim said: "I want to encourage any budding film directors or musicians to apply for this competition. Cumbria is a vibrant place with a wealth of talented individuals and this competition is the perfect opportunity for this talent to be showcased in Parliament.

"The prizes and judges get better every year and I would be delighted to support and promote any acts from our area in the 2014 competition. It would make me immensely proud to see a winner from Cumbria and it would reinforce my view that I represent one of the most talented constituencies in the UK."

Rock legend and actor, 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!"
