The following information describes the John Lennon Songwriting Contest: www.jlsc.com
The John Lennon Songwriting Contest is an internationally renowned songwriting contest providing opportunities for amateur and professional songwriters alike. Participants may enter as many songs as they like in any of 12 musical categories: Rock, Country, Jazz, Pop, World, Rhythm & Blues, Hip Hop, Gospel/Inspirational, Latin, Electronic, Folk, and Children’s. Entries are judged on originality, melody, composition, and lyrics; instrumental compositions are also encouraged. Neither performance nor production value will be considered during the adjudication process. The Contest runs year-round with two sessions, the first January through June, and the second through December. Three Finalists and one Grand Prize Winner for each category in each session are determined by a panel of judges, including stellar songwriters and performers as well as industry professionals. Those Grand Prize Winners then go head to head online, where the public votes on which songwriter in each category becomes eligible for the “Song of the Year.” That decision is made by an Executive Committee representing all musical genres, which includes such legendary talents as Bob Weir (Grateful Dead), Prince Royce, George Clinton, Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Nick Hexum (311), American Authors and many more.
The “Song of the Year” winner is announced to the public in July.
