Mid-Atlantic Song Contest

Mid-Atlantic Song Contest Accepting Submissions

The Songwriters’ Association of Washington (SAW) is presenting its Annual Mid-Atlantic Song Contest (MASC) to help songwriters receive recognition for their work and take their careers to the next level. Founded in 1983, MASC is one of the longest-running contests in the U. S. and attracts entries from all over the world. The contest will award more than 100 Gold, Silver, Finalist and Honorable Mention prizes in 12 categories: Adult Contemporary, Children’s, Country/Bluegrass, Folk Acoustic, Folk Rock/Americana/Roots Rock, Gospel/Inspirational/Christian, Instrumental, Open, Pop, R&B/Hip Hop/Urban, Rock/Alternative and Vocal Jazz/Blues.

Gold and Silver Winners are invited to perform their winning songs at the Awards Night Gala, culminating with the three top Winners being announced that night. The Gold and Silver songs from each category are compiled and released on a "Winner's CD," copies of which are given to each winner and distributed to a variety of music industry decision-makers.

Submission deadline is Sept. 30. To enter, visit saw.org/masc
