Year of Listening 2016 Competition

Are you a budding poet, writer or photographer? If so we'd love to hear about what listening means to you!

Email your photo (<2MB), short story (<500 words), or poem (<40 lines), which answers the question:

What does listening mean to you?



Listening can mean different things

An act, a moment, a mood

For some it’s lending a caring ear

Or making others feel good

Whatever it is, let’s hear your thoughts

And make this one of those years

When Scotland’s time to listen

Brings music to your ears


The closing date for entries is Friday 28th October 2016. One winner from each category will receive an MP3 player. See the competition terms and conditions for more details.
