SongDoor International Songwriting Competition

Age limit: 16 or older
SongDoor is the only song writing competition that provides every single entrant with a free an unlimited access trial to, plus a Broadjam Film/TV membership, plus a different kind of songwriting software every year. This year you'll get another great program that's compatible with Mac and Windows, absolutely free - just for entering. Why do we do it? Because we want to help you be a better songwriter. No strings, no obligations. Ask anyone who's entered a song, they'll tell you.

Essentially, we give everybody $220 worth of songwriting tools for a $10 entry fee, meaning we give away far more than we take in. Believe it or not, we are not in this for the money. If we were, we'd charge $40 an entry and double our songwriter services fees. This is why we have the most loyal group of entrants on the planet.
In sum, we're here to help you be a better songwriter and to get your music heard by someone who can actually do something about it.
