Talent Needed|

Photo: Joel Ashmore – previous winner! | The Colorado Music Business Organization’s Ninth Annual Songwriting Contest is half-way there! It ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, August 1st! Do you have a song you have written and ten ($10) dollars that may help YOU out and definitely will help COMBO? Read on because this contest is for YOU!!

The Top Scoring songs will be put on a compilation CD and hand delivered to publishers, record companies, music supervisors, and others – that have agreed beforehand to accept them – along with a cover letter telling a little about COMBO, and with lyric sheets for each of the songs. Winners will also receive one copy of the compilation CD for their use.

Last year’s CD package was passed out to Big Yellow Dog Publishing (Meghan Trainor’s publisher); Windswept Pacific; The Song Factory; Writer’s Den Music Group; Garvan Media, Management and Marketing; Doug Garvey (CO State Fair and other events); Lyric House Publishing; and Jeff Silbar (writer of “Wind Beneath My Wings”). We also mailed copies to Vapor Music Group (Music Supervision and Licensing), Imagem Music, Razor & Tie (music placement), LBK Entertainment. and SQE Publishing. Johnnie Johnson of Innervision Records will be featuring the winning songs on his radio shows, and copies were given to Denver Open Media for their radio shows as well.

We would also like to honor the top songwriters by featuring them at an Awards Ceremony at a special Songwriters Night in November.

Please submit Songs in an MP3 format with Lyric Sheets as attachments via our website http://www.coloradomusic.org and there is a special button there for you to do so! Songs submitted should have been registered for copyright before sending them to COMBO.

We will not have categories but we do reserve the right to only use two songs from any one writer or group of writers on the CD.

You can pay for your entries thru PayPal on our website, http://www.coloradomusic.org

COMBO members who are up-to-date on their dues will be able to enter ONE song at no charge; paid bands may submit TWO songs at no charge.

The contest DEFINITELY ENDS ON MONDAY, AUGUST 1st at 11:59 p.m. in order to get the Compilation CDs ready to pass out at the Durango Songwriters Expo in Broomfield at the end of September.

BTW, the Durango Songwriters Expo throws in a “scholarship” to the Expo in Broomfield, CO. Every writer’s name is put into “the hat” and a name is drawn out to win that entry!
