Song Competitions


Founded in 2004, We Are Listening is a London-based artist development organization providing career-building services for up & coming and established professional artists. A music market leader, We Are Listening serves signed and unsigned artists from over fifty countries and has set a new music industry standard through a series of revolutionary international song competitions.

We Are Listening's selection of music competitions include The Singer/Songwriter Awards, the company's premier international song contest; Lyric Writer Awards, a lyrics-only lyric writing competition; World of Music Awards, a world-music genre event for performing artists and songwriters; New Music Video Awards, a music video contest; and Breaking the Band, an all-encompassing music marketing initiative and We Are Listening's most recent addition to its song competitions series.

Prizes for the song competitions include professional production weekends in England, songwriting retreats in Sweden, radio promotion and administration, public relations management, sync licensing representation, and much more. In many instances, We Are Listening's song competitions have amounted to commercial success stories where competition winners have been offered artist deals, television placement, festival appearances, and professional management.

All five song competitions are headed by an elite panel of the music industry’s finest and most sough-after professionals, acting as competition judges and providing participants with invaluable insight and feedback.

Submit your music to We Are Listening and differentiate yourself as a new breed of independent talent.
