Created By Songwriters For Songwriters

As songwriters we understand the advantages of finding new opportunities in the music business.

Even so, we seriously question the value of large commercial competitions — those so-called "song lotteries" that solicit 20,000 to 30,000 entries each year. They boast endless hype, but provide no real way for the entrants to know if their songs are thoroughly reviewed or fairly considered.

Another problem with the "Big-Cash-Prize" competitions is obvious: They reward only a very small percentage of songwriters, leaving everyone else with nothing to show for their creative effort and entry fee.

The Great American Song Contest™ is a distinctly different kind of songwriting competition — and a far better choice for most songwriters, lyricists and composers.

Rules & Entry:

The Great American Song Contest is open to songwriters, lyricists & music composers worldwide.

This annual event is designed for amateur and semi-pro songwriters only. Individuals who earn over $10,000 annually from song publishing royalties are not eligible.

An entry fee of $35 is required for each entered song. (Note: There is a limit of 10 songs per songwriter per year.)
If the same song is entered in multiple categories, each requires a separate entry fee.

This year's submission deadline is November 17, 2022. Online submissions must be received by this date.

Mailed submissions must be postmarked by this date.

All entrants will be sent an entry confirmation and judging schedule when their songs are received and processed.
