Songwriting Contest offering a
Martin Guitar Giveaway in May. You don't have to enter
the contest to be eligible. The Martin guitar is valued at $1129.00.
Song of the Year (SOTY) is an international contest
encouraging the art and discipline of songwriting. Our primary focus
is to find great
songwriters while helping them network with professionals in the
music industry. A portion of the proceeds support
VH-1's Save the Music Foundation.
Songwriters submissions are judged by a panel of music
professionals. The preliminary-judging staff consists of individuals
who have showed leadership in music related fields and notable
songwriters. Top yearly winners will be judged by an
elite-panel of judges consisting of four
Grammy winners as well as individuals from Rolling Stone, ABC
television, and more.
Each month (SOTY) selects one winner and four
finalists from each of the ten categories (50 songs per month).
Those songs are sent out to major/minor labels, publishers, and
other outlets who we have relationships with. Monthly
winners/finalists' information will be distributed accordingly.
Should there be further interest in your material, our affiliates
will contact you directly.
At year's end, 12 monthly "winning" songs from
each category will be judged by a secondary-judging panel who
selects one song to represent each category. These final 10 songs
from each category will compete for the honor of "Song of the Year".
