Songwriter's Corner|

No extensions! The Colorado Music Business Organization announces its Third Annual  Songwriting Contest! Winning songs will be submitted to *REAL* publishing companies, music supervisors, and more. We’ll also be putting all entrants names in the hat (literally) and will be drawing one name for a FREE ENTRY to this year’s DURANGO SONGWRITERS EXPO at the Omni Interlocken Hotel & Resort in Broomfield, October 1st – 3rd. Only $10 per song to enter – dues-paying members get one entry FREE! Read on because this contest is for YOU!! Individual members who are currently up on their dues may submit one song at no charge; bands get free entry for two songs. The contest started May 1st and ends August 31st, 2015.

COMBO will put the top scoring songs on a compilation CD and hand deliver to publishers, music supervisors, record company people, and producers that have agreed to accept them, along with a cover letter telling a little about COMBO and about each of the songs, like who the writers thought the song might be good for, i.e., this country song might be good for Carrie Underwood.
Also, the entry fee must be paid by the end of the contest and received by September 5th, 2015.

Songs are to be submitted as attachments to in MP3 format so that contest staff may place the songs on Dropbox for each judge to listen from the privacy of their own homes. Please also attach a Lyric Sheet for each song. Make sure your lyric sheets match the lyrics on the recording.

The top rated songs will then be placed on the compilation CD. We will try to get 20 songs on but cannot promise that number due to the length of the songs total.
Send your payment checks to:
P.O. Box 18186
Denver CO 80218

Full details on our website under “Songwriters’ Corner”. Remember: If you are currently paid up on your dues, you get one song entry at no charge or bands get two free entries!
