You have until 23 December to enter your Christmas/Holiday song and have a chance at winning this year’s grand prize
If you’re a songwriter or part of a songwriting team and think you could come up with the next Christmas classic, this competition is definitely for you. Whether you’ve been inspired by an old standard like White Christmas or a more modern favourite such as All I Want For Christmas Is You, you have until 23 December 2021 to enter the 6th Annual Christmas Songwriting Competition.
The Grand Prize winner will receive $1000 of merchandise from the competition’s sponsors, a Christmas Songwriting trophy and a possible songwriting contract with a major music publishing house. Not only that, the Top 15 finalists’ songs will appear on a special Christmas/Holiday compilation CD that will be promoted to radio stations in the USA and Canada.
Winners will be chosen by a Blue Ribbon Judging Committee comprised of music industry professionals including A&R managers from record labels, publishers and producers. Songs are judged equally on originality, lyrics, melody and composition. Songs may be in any language. Quality of performance and production will not be considered.
Speaking of his victory in the 5th Annual Christmas Songwriting Competition, folk singer-songwriter Craig Werth says, “I am honored to be recognized along with other fine writers, gratitude to all those who have supported me!”
All songs submitted must be original and can be entered online or by regular mail. Multiple songs can be submitted and there is a cost of $35 per entry. You can find the full terms and entry form at songwriting.net/xmas-sm
