A cool new venue!

Thrilled to announce that this year’s Midlands Launch Event will be hosted by one of Birmingham’s most unique film and photography studios, The Lampworks. And not only that, they are throwing in a couple of prizes also!

The Lampworks is a new studio complex situated in the Jewellery Quarter built from combining a converted engineering factory and two adjoining Victorian houses with a courtyard. It’s the first phase of what is to become a substantial creative hub, focused on filmmaking, photography, fashion and music.

We love this space: a really cool mix of grungy exposed brickwork and warehouse chic for everyone to mingle, hang out and meet their team partners for the competition. Its also going to be the venue for our Music Video Masterclass, which will take place on the afternoon of 17th May, as well as the launch event happening 7pm-11pm that same evening.

Prizes prizes prizes

The Lampworks Studio are also offering two great prizes:

  • For the raffle, which will take place on the night of 17th May:

    • 0.5 days free studio hire to be used over the weekend of 26/27 May (mid-competition) - including access to kit including lights, track, dolly and loads more.

A perfect location for shooting those moody close ups of your act, this is a great opportunity for all contestants!

  • To the makers of the winning video:

    • 1 full days studio hire with access to all kit and Lampworks staff to help assist on your day in the studio

This extremely versatile location prize can be used for any project of your choosing, so line up a short, a corporate promo, another music video - whatever takes your fancy.

We are delighted to have the Lampworks involved and thank Chris and Kev for their generosity at coming on board as a headline sponsor! Find out more about what they offer at
