Contest: Indie Music Song Contest

7/10/2009 12:04:00 AM
This is one that I'm going to have to pass on, because I have no talent when it comes to composing. I used to play a mean piano and cello, but that was ages ago. This one's for all you musicians at Berklee or the New England Conservatory, and other places like that.

It's our YEAR OF THE INDIE Celebration and it started "Indiependents" Day July 4th! There are 16 genre categories to choose from to enter your song in, including Songwriting. The Grand Prize is a huge package that includes $1000 worth of musical equipment (whatever you need), 2 weeks stay in a condo suite at your choice of a number of US vacation spots, an iPod Shuffle, and a IAC Prime Perpetual Lifetime membership. But there are also 3 nice prizes in each of 16 categories and you can enter any original song. You will get a lot of additional exposure even by advancing to the later rounds of the competition.

The contest starts on July 4th, Independence Day and entries are accepted for 7 weeks. Cover songs are not permitted. Every 2 weeks half the songs are eliminated (in equal part by popular vote and by group of judges). On August 24th the finalists will be announced with a final competition determining 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category. Then out of the 16 first place winners, a 1st and 2nd grand prize will be announced.


Good luck to all you aspiring musicians out there!
