Songdoor 2011 International Songwriting Competition

The SongDoor International Songwriting Competition is an annual event, open to amateur and professional songwriters worldwide. An unlimited number of songs may be entered in any of six categories: Christian, Country, Pop, Rock/Alt, Soft Rock and Instrumental.

The total prize purse is valued at more than $40,000. Entrants are eligible to win the Grand Award, valued at approximately $7,950 in music merchandise and services, including a single-song publishing contract with Hard Twist Music-BMI (owned by mega-hit songwriter Bill Shore), a full-band private session demo at 16 Ton Studios, Music Row’s favorite recording facility, one-year full-access membership to, copy of MasterWriter songwriting software, suite of songwriting software from Tanager Audioworks, Primo MoB membership to Broadjam, #1 membership for Songsinc and an autographed copy of Robin Frederick’s best-selling songwriting book.

“The only requirement to get the free course and free software is to enter one song,” says SongDoor president Tony Zotta. “That’s a $120 return on a $10 investment, not too bad in this economy.”

Judges include seasoned music industry producers, artists and engineers who have worked with such artists as Britney Spears, Neil Young, Keith Urban, Cheap Trick, Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Buffett, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill and a host of others. Judges: Joe Beck, Bill Shore, Jason Blume, Nancy Moran, Dennis Winters and Steve Avedis.
