By: International Songwriters Day
TORONTO - Dec. 28, 2020 - PRLog -- The "International Songwriters Day Song Contest" is kicking off for its third year running and is looking for "songs of inspiration," to help celebrate International Songwriters Day, April 9. Contest opens Dec. 28, 2020 and runs until April 2, 2021.

The contest is open to writers all around the world, from all levels of experience. This year's theme is "Inspiration." They are looking for songs that inspire, think (new beginnings, second chances, starting over), etc. They can be ballads but they should have an element of hope or redemption in the storyline, to fit the theme.

Production and performance aren't a consideration. It's originality, melody and lyrics –the meat and bones- that the judges are looking for.

There is also an "Indie Music Video" category (open to any artist/band who is not signed to a major label). Theme again is "Inspiration."

The judges have lived, breathed and worked in the industry for many years and have multi-awards and Grammy nominations to show for it. These highly talented people have one thing in common, they all love and respect a great song.

The judges are : Grammy nominated producer/engineer Bruce Sugar (Ringo Starr, Ozzy Osbourne), Mike Gormley, LAPD Mgmt. who helped launch the careers of Rod Stewart, BTO, Rush, The Police, Danny Elfman, the Bangles, Myles Goodwyn (producer, songwriter, lead singer for April Wine), Martin Isherwood, Head of Music at Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA), David Eaton (producer/engineer for Polyphonic Spree, Dynamite Hack, Archivist for top tier record label), Rick Rose (former staff writer for Sony ATV Nashville & Warner Chappel), and Diana Williamson who has written 2x#3 Billboard Hot Club chart songs and is VP of

Some wonderful prize sponsors are on board, such as "The Music Registry," in depth music directories, song pitch opportunities from "The Song Tuner," the Indie Bible (directories), Broadjam music pitching opportunities, AirPlay Direct - Global Radio Marketing & Promotion and the book 101 Tips and Tricks of Successful Songwriting.

The company's contests have been voted "Top 10" by Music Connection in the past. They work hard to elevate songwriters and good songwriting. Winners will be announced on April 9, International Songwriters Day!
