So far, two bands from The High School of Glasgow have entered the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships due to take place next year, but organisers are keen to get more bands on board.
The first competition took place in March this year, when 40 schools battled for the top prize.
More than 60 schools from across Scotland have registered for the 2014 event ahead of the January 24 deadline but it's hope more sign up.
The championships has categories for every level, including bands which have never played in public.
Raymond McKeown, who leads The High School of Glasgow Pipe Bands, said: "We really enjoyed the competition and are all looking forward to taking part again.
"Apart from entering our main band, we are excited about entering the new category in the competition which can combine pipes and drums with other musical instruments.
"It's great to see so much celebration and enthusiasm surrounding Scotland's national instrument."
The competition will take place on March 9 in Broughton High School and Fettes College in Edinburgh.
