The Womens Freedom Song Contest is now accepting submissions. The contest is searching for the next “female anthem,” to celebrate International Womens Day. Winners will be announced on International Women’s Day, March 8.
The contest was created to challenge songwriters around the world to celebrate women in a song, just in time for International Womens Day. The contest is open to everyone and (all genders).
The song judges are: award-winning songwriter Alan Roy Scott (Celine, Patti Labelle, Notorious B.G.

The Womens Freedom Song contest is just the beginning. This inaugural event will be an annual contest. The WFS is also partnering with international female charities and affiliated organizations as well as celebrity musicians, to become involved in live events.
