The Guitar Competition
Five awards will be presented with the first place guitar winner receiving a coveted handmade Henderson guitar!
Registration for the Wayne C. Henderson Guitar Competition will open on April 1, 2017. (Do not apply before this date.) Any application postmarked before April 1, 2017, will be not accepted and returned. Deadline is May 1, 2017.
Who Can Enter?
Any grand-prize winners before 2012 may apply for a slot in this year’s contest (grand-prize winners from 2012 through 2016 are not eligible). The preceding year winners (second through fifth place, or four slots) can enter the competition without going through the drawing process. They will need to send in their applications and entry fees within the specified time and they are guaranteed a slot. The remaining slots will be filled by random drawing to create 20 contestants and 10 alternates. The drawing will be held shortly after the May 1 deadline. Check rules for details.
To register, please send your completed application, a self-addressed stamped envelope, and a $20 check or money order made payable to Wayne C. Henderson Guitar Competition to:
c/o Herb Key
1423 Dragway Rd
Wilkesboro, NC 28697
Application fee will be refunded for those not selected and alternates who do not get to compete.
The deadline for the application is May 1.
Upon acceptance, you will receive a list of rules, one performer’s pass, and other pertinent information. Official rules are mailed each year to the accepted contestants.
