Hear ye, hear ye: COMBO – The Colorado Music Business Organization – announces its Third Annual Songwriting Contest! Winning songs will be submitted to *REAL* publishing companies. There will be NO CA$H prizes. Do you have a song you have written and Ten ($10) Dollars laying around not doing anything? 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 starts May 1st and will end on August 31st, 2015.
COMBO will put the top scoring songs on a compilation CD and hand deliver to publishers (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 is good for Carrie Underwood. One compilation CD will be given out for each song to the songwriter(s). In other words, if you have five co-writers on the song, one of you will receive a CD which you may copy for the other writers. However, be cautioned – making copies to sell or to give out to other friends and/or family will be in violation of copyright laws. Please do not do that.
Songs are to be submitted as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
The top rated songs will then be placed on the compilation CD. We will try to get 20 songs on but cannot promise that due to the length of the songs total.
Remember: If you are currently paid up on your dues, you get one song entry at no charge! Bands get two free entries!
