International Songwriting Contest

Direct Entries from June 2021

The ISA International Songwriting Awards has joined with some of the world´s biggest songwriting events and organizations in the global music industry to become The International Songwriting Contest. You can enter directly or through the UK Songwriting Contest or The USA Songwriting Contest.  It provides a unique opportunity for all songwriters, beginner and established, to represent their own country in an international song play off. It has been compared to Eurovision because songs compete by country and not by category, but unlike Eurovision there is a stronger emphasis on the songwriters.  There are more details on the official ISA Website – but a new dedicated sIte for the International Songwriting Contest is in development which will replace this and will be live online before the June opening.

This is the best value for option available, and saves paying the full direct entry fee of $25. This offer may be time limited but it is available as we write this.

USA Songwriting Contest


The USA Songwriting Contest is the American edition and version of the popular UK Songwriting Contest.
