All entries must be received by September 15. Finalists will be notified no later than October 1.

Here’s how it works…

You may submit 2 songs for consideration, which must be received by 5pm on Sunday, September 15th.

You must include typewritten lyrics AND a homeburned cd, OR mp3 recording, OR active link to a full-length recording of your songs, along with the entry fee and your contact information. Please make sure that your name and the title of your song are at the top of your lyrics, marked on the CD, or included in the mp3 file name.

Our selection committee will assess the entries based on lyrics, melody, composition, and originality, and will choose 30 FINALISTS to perform ONE SONG live before the panel of judges on Saturday, October 26. The judges will then determine the winners based on the same categories, with performance to be taken into consideration only in the event of a tie.

The finalist performance will run from 8pm til at least 11pm. If you cannot commit to being here for the entire performance (see the notes about the order-of-go below), then please do not submit an entry.

If you are selected as a finalist, you may perform your song with no more than 2 supporting musicians.
