America's Songwriting Contest

Gwen StefaniI was a different person before I started to write. When I realized I could be a songwriter and that people would listen – that was when I started feeling good in my life."  - Gwen Stefani

Bring The World Fire. True songwriters desire nothing more than to bring their music to the world. Cutting through the noise, however, and reaching an audience - much less receiving a studio contract - can be daunting regardless of one’s talent.

The American Songwriting Awards is an international, elite-class songwriting competition open to unknowns and working artists who want to be heard, recognized, and rewarded for their songwriting talent. This high-profile annual contest brings together top music industry producers, artists, and songwriters to discover and promote new talent in a format that focuses solely on their ability to write great songs.

Held annually live at the world-famous Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, our Awards Show is a beacon for press, music industry professionals and an amazing celebration of talent, creativity and, of course, music. The 2014 American Songwriting Awards will take place July 12, 2014.

The American Songwriting Awards stands with the most prominent competitions of its kind, presenting prize packages and career opportunities nearly unrivaled in other songwriting contests. Top prizes include cash, executive introductions, recording opportunities, agency representation, product packages from our sponsors, and exposure to an international audience. In all, winners and contestants receive the prestige, praise and attention rising songwriters need to create careers in the highly competitive music industry.

Multiple categories of music genres ensure that all styles of music and songwriting will be included and given proper respect and attention. Rock, Pop, Hip Hop and more; songwriters of all genres will find a place for their particular music and style.

Now is the time to seize your place with the great songwriters and artists that influence and touch our lives. Enter today, and bring your fire to the American Songwriting Awards.
