What is a Songwriter Contest “Round”?

April 28th, 2011 by We Are Listening

The Singer/Songwriter Awards takes place six times a year.  When we first launched in 2005, we (uh, I…) decided to number each contest, 1 through 6, for each year.  

Stupidly, we named each of the six contests as a “Round” (e.g. The 2005 Singer/Songwriter Awards Round 1).

This created some confusion for you guys because you associated “Rounds” with multiple segments of a single event (like in boxing), right?

To clarify, each contest “Round” is an independent and complete contest.  As such, if you enter Round 1 and win, then you win.  That’s it.  You do not need to enter any further Rounds… but you are more than welcome to.

Make sense?

You might be asking yourself, “If it’s so confusing, why don’t they name the contests differently?”

Ahh… good question!

Our entire backend system (the database we use to store, display and reconcile your contest submissions), is configured to ‘understand’ Rounds.  Changing it is possible but a major undertaking.

Unfortunately, we’re stuck with Rounds.
