MidWeek Updates: Upcoming Music Competitions


Hey there everyone…January is pretty much over, but I have found something for those lobbying in music. For a lot of us, we love to listen to music, but for some, we love to make it. Here are a few upcoming music competitions that I post before you…



If you are an unsigned artist and think you have what it takes to land a record deal, then you should enter the Unsigned Only Music Competition. Since Unsigned Only launched seven years ago, four Grand Prize winners have been signed to major label record deals, making Unsigned Only a leading source for transitioning new talent into major label record deals. However, getting a record deal isn’t the only success Unsigned Only artists have achieved. Many winners have also secured licensing deals, publishing deals, better gigs, and more recognition after winning the competition. This could be your chance!

The Hollywood Songwriting Contest is an opportunity for real talent to be heard and exposed. This elite, international songwriting competition is an open call to songwriters and artists looking for recognition of their talents and, quite possisbly, that first big break. Bringing together top music industry producers, musicians and songwriters, the Hollywood Songwriting Contest champions the discovery and promotion of the very best songwriters in the world.

The John Lennon Songwriting Contest is an international songwriting contest that began in 1997. The Contest is open to amateur and professional songwriters who submit entries in any one of 12 categories.
