The winning song will be professionally arranged and recorded before being made available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play. Additionally, the winning song will form part of the Scotland Sings – Renewing The Tradition Songbook after having undergone extensive workshop and performance opportunites at Scotland Sings – Renewing The Tradition in October 2016.
