International Songwriting Competition adds publishing prize

Songwriting Competition Adds Music Publishing Prize

The 2016 International Songwriting Competition (ISC) is open to both amateur and professional songwriters. Winning ISC is a distinction that has propelled many artists to achieve greater success, including getting record and publishing deals, licensing agreements, gigs and much more.

This year ISC has added a new category called “Unpublished.” We all know how important publishing is to an artist––it is a major source of revenue––but it is difficult to get music heard by publishing companies. So, ISC is taking steps to open the doors for having established, high-profile publishers as judges for this category only.

ISC professes to have the highest profile judges in any songwriting competition, including Tom Waits, Chris Cornell, Lorde, Bastille, Ziggy Marley, Donovan, Joe Bonamassa, India Arie, Mike Stern, Salif Keita, Keane, Fat Joe, Ryan Bingham and many more––as well as Presidents, CEO’s and A&R executives from major labels.

The deadline to submit is Nov. 4.
