Everything is a factor in a talent contest. Enter songs and video performances that best personify you as an artist. The more songs & videos you enter, the better chance our judges have to evaluate your talent.

It’s vital to determine the ‘live’ performance abilities of each entrant. We highly recommend you to include a performance video as an additional entry to any produced songs you enter. 

Our judges do not give individual feedback. If you are interested in having your lyrics reviewed, we have a lyric critique benefit that is included in our Diamond Memberships.

The finalists will be announced in Fall 2024 via email and on our website. The grand-prize winner will be announced at American Songwriter’s 40th Anniversary Celebration event.
