brokenToday sees the launch of an exciting competition, ‘Sound of Broken Silence’, for all budding musicians and music producers to compose and produce a track for youth charity group, Broken Silence.

As well as having their track as the sound of Broken Silence, to feature on the charity’s website and all future multimedia materials, the winner of the competition will also receive two tickets to the Broken Silence Talent Show 2011, two tickets to the screening of a glamorous London film premiere, the chance to meet Richard Campbell and the opportunity for further media exposure.
