Songwriting Competitions

AMERICAN SONGWRITER MAGAZINE'S LYRIC WRITING CONTEST

Requirements: Send lyrics only. Lyrics must be typed and a check for $10 (per entry) must be enclosed. 3 entries maximum per contest. Include an entry form with each lyric sheet submitted. Call for required official form (615-321-6096) or print it from our website.

Lyrics only, no cassettes.

Awards: A Martin guitar with case and certificate to each contest winner. Top 5 winning lyrics for each contest reprinted in American Songwriter Magazine. One overall winner per year receives airfare to Nashville and a demo session.

BILLBOARD SONG CONTEST

Whether your style of music is pop, rock, country, jazz, gospel, Latin, blues, or dance, the 14th Annual Billboard Song Contest could offer you unparalleled professional exposure among some of the music industry’s most influential names. All songs receive a judging report. Our judging report will tell you how your song performed with tips on structure and content.

Our professional songwriting and music industry judges will be considering your music on the basis of originality, lyrics, melody, composition and commercial appeal, so you don't need to book studio time to produce your entry. Although production does make the song prettier, production values do not count. A homemade "track" is fine. Don't worry if you're not a great singer - after all, it's a songwriting contest!

If you've averaged less than $5,000 per year total royalties earned from music since 1992 (including prize winnings from previous song contests), you're eligible to enter. Here's how a star could be born! Enter your original song(s) in any of these categories: Country, Pop, Rock/Alternative, Contemporary Christian/Traditional Gospel, Latin, Jazz, Dance, or R&B/Blues.
