Nashville, TN: The International Songwriting Competition (ISC) is pleased to announce its panel of judges for the 2017 competition. Established in 2002, ISC is the world’s largest songwriting competition, receiving entries from more than 130 countries.
Consisting of some of the most iconic and respected artists in the world, the judging panel also includes top tier music industry executives, including Presidents and CEOs from record labels Atlantic, Sire, Glassnote, Razor & Tie, Concord Label Group, S-Curve, Warner Music Nashville, Black River Entertainment, Alligator, Wind-Up, and more.
Candace Avery, Founder and Director of ISC, states, “One of the biggest challenges facing artists is getting their music heard by the decision-makers in the music industry. Typically music executives receive so much new music each week that it is impossible for them to listen to even a fraction, or any, of what they get. Entering ISC offers an unique opportunity for artists to actually get their music heard by high-level industry executives, as well as some of their favorite recording artists.”
ISC gives away more than $150,000 in cash and prizes shared among the 71 winners, including an overall Grand Prize consisting of $25,000 (US) cash and much more in prizes. Open to both amateur and professional songwriters, ISC offers 23 categories to enter, representing all genres of contemporary, popular music.
Entering ISC can be done online or through the mail, and information can be found at http://www.songwritingcompetition.com.
