Enter the Songwriting University Contest

Songwriting University's mission is to honor songs and songwriters. One way they do that is through their songwriting competition. The song you enter will be heard by a range of talented, trusted and successful songwriters, artists, producers and industry pros who know what goes into writing a great song. Getting heard is what every songwriter wants and a great song can open hearts and doors.

Make them laugh. Make them cry. Make them dance. Make them say “Alright, O yeah, Amen.”
