Started in 1998, The Nashville International Songwriting Competition® has been open to emerging songwriters all over the world and features some very distinct advantages, including awards of over $125,000. Multiple phases of the competition throughout the year means prizes are awarded faster and more often than contests that happen only once a year and offers a level playing field for emerging songwriters who don't have to compete with writers who've already had major label recording or publishing deals. The competition allows opportunities for both lyric writers AND song writers to compete for prizes.

Phases include a Valentine Love Song Competition, A Spring Competition, One for Summer to look for ever popular Summer songs, a Fall Event and an all-important Christmas Competition which seeks new entries to compete with the ever-popular Christmas songs so loved throughout the world.

ABOUT PARAMOUNTSONG: Founded in 1983, ParamountSong, the Nashville Songwriting Site and songwriter resource company, provides professional songwriting help for songwriters, including lyricists, internationally.
