International Songwriting Comp. Extends Deadline

October 18, 2010 - Contest

The International Songwriting Competition (ISC) has extended its deadline for entering to December 3, 2010. I am attaching a press release and hope that you will post it and/or distribute it to songwriters, musicians, and bands so that they know there is still time to enter.

ISC accepts entries from amateur and professional songwriters, and gives away over $150,000 in cash and prizes (including a Grand Prize of $25,000 cash (US) and $20,000 in music equipment and other prizes).

Internationally renowned for its high-caliber judges, ISC has put together an impressive panel of 60 judges this year, offering entrants a unique opportunity to have their songs heard by some of the most influential decision-makers in the industry. Monte Lipman, President of Universal Republic Records and a judge for the past nine years, states “We’re always been impressed with the talented songwriters who participate in the ISC. This is a great A&R source to find new artists.” Since 2004, three of the five Grand Prize winners have been signed to major record labels (Universal Republic,¬†Motown,¬†and Epic), one to a high-profile independent label, and one to a publishing deal.

The deadline to enter has been extended to December 3, 2010. ISC accepts online, mail-in, and MySpace entries. Entries must be postmarked or submitted online on or before midnight EST (US) on December 3, 2010.
