The 8th Annual Christmas Songwriting Competition is open for entry

You could be driving home for Christmas with a trophy, merchandise, and potential publishing deal if you’re this year’s winner

It’s that time of year when we’re always thinking, ‘Is the next classic Christmas song ever going to arrive in our stocking?’ I mean, we love Fairytale Of New York and All I Want For Christmas Is You as much as the next person, but it’s been a very long time since a song came along, dusted the snow off, and announced itself as a genuinely memorable entry into the festive canon.

If you feel the same way, and think you have the answer up your sleeves, then you really should be entering The 8th Annual Christmas Songwriting Competition. The winning songwriter(s) will receive a special Christmas Songwriting trophy, $1000 worth of merchandise and possible songwriting contract with a major music publishing house.

Not only that, the top 15 songs will appear on our Christmas/Holiday compilation CD and promoted to various radio stations in the USA and Canada. It’s a great way to get your song heard and is excellent exposure for up-and-coming songwriters and artists.

Last year’s competition was won by songwriters Brett Trout and Kayley Bishop who warmed the judges’ chestnuts with their entry Christmissin You. Along with the writers of the second and third place songs Feels Like Home On Christmas Day and Makin’ Some Magic, they’ve already received publishing offers as a result of their success.

Good luck, we can’t wait to be rocking around the Christmas tree to your seasonal song.

The deadline is 23 December 2023 and each entry costs $35. Songs can be submitted online at xsongs.songwriting.net, and for the full terms and conditions head over to songwriting.net/xmas
