"Thank you for providing such a rewarding songwriting contest for songwriters!
The evaluations were very helpful."
Lisa Thompson, Columbus OH

14th Annual

How many times have you wanted to get your songs heard by music industry professionals? Or wished you had a songwriting award to help promote your music to publishers, producers and the music media?
