How It Works

The songwriting entries are reviewed and judged by the songwriting merits alone. Production quality is not taken into consideration. We are looking for great songwriters, not great producers. A simple home or live recording of a song has the same chance of winning the songwriting contest as a professional recording has of winning. Many of the past winners have placed with simple vocal/guitar or vocal/piano recordings. Vocal ability is 'not' taken into consideration. Only the "songwriting" elements of the songs are considered when determining the winners. "Lyric Only" category entries have the same chance of winning the competition as do any of the other categories. Once all of the material is judged, there will be one winning song representing each of the ten categories. During the second round of judging, those top ten songs then compete against each other to determine the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. It will be these winners who will be awarded the cash and prizes.
