International Songwriters Day (April 9), would like to invite you to our fifth year of the “International Songwriters Day Song Contest” to once again, help kick off this special day. Have you written the next hit? Well we want to hear it!

International Songwriters' Day

Our contest is open to writers all around the world, from all levels of experience. This year’s theme is “Inspiration.” We are looking for songs, music videos and lyrics that inspire, think (new beginnings, second chances, starting over), etc. They can be ballads but they should have an element of hope or redemption in the storyline, to fit the theme.

Our judges are : Mike Gormley, LAPD Mgmt. who helped launch the careers of Rod Stewart, BTO, Rush, The Police, Danny Elfman, the Bangles, Martin Isherwood, Head of Music at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA), Rick Rose (former staff writer for Sony ATV Nashville & Warner Chappel), David Eaton, Producer/Engineer for (Polyphonic Spree, Dynamite Hack, Archivist for Warner/Elektra/Atlantic) and Diana Williamson who has written 2x#3 Billboard Hot Club chart songs, is author of “101 Tips and Tricks of Successful Songwriting, and VP of Themusiclibrary.org.
