The American Songwriting Awards signal the start of competition with the launch of the official contest website at http://www.americansongwritingawards.com. Organizers announce professional and amateur songwriters are now eligible for entry in one of the world’s biggest open songwriting contests of its kind.
The American Songwriting Awards presents an elite level competition with a prize package of over $25,000 for contest winners. Perhaps even better for those seeking a long-term music career, the top winners are honored at a gala concert awards ceremony at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in front of press, celebrity musicians and music industry professionals.
“This is a serious contest. We’re looking for rare talent,” states Joseph Paulos, executive director of the American Songwriting Awards. “Who is the next Rihanna or Justin Timberlake? We’re excited to find out and bring those voices to the world.”
We would like to thank our Sponsors & Partners, including Guitar Center, Shure Incorporated, pigFACTORY Music Publishing, 8tracks, Sony Creative Software, Sonicbids, and Broadjam for their generous support.
Artists are encouraged to visit http://www.americansongwritingawards.com for contest rules and dates. Regular entry deadline is February 28, 2014.
