Song Contests


Founded in 2004, We Are Listening provides career-building opportunities, artist development services, and online musician resources for independent artists. A leader in its field, the company caters to signed and unsigned artists from over 50 countries and has set an industry standard with the launch of a series of break-through international song contests in 2005.

To date, We Are Listening has awarded winners of its song contests with music production trips to the UK, song writing retreats in Sweden, radio promotion and press representation in the US, international synch licensing administration, and much more. In several cases, We Are Listening's song contests have resulted in commercial success stories whereby winners have been offered recording and publishing deals, and attractive television placement offers, not to mention overall uplifts in press coverage and music sales.

We Are Listening's selection of music contests include The Singer/Songwriter Awards, the company's flagship international contest; Lyric Writer Awards, a lyrics-only initiative; World of Music Awards, for world-music genre artists and songwriters; New Music Video Awards, a music video competition; and Breaking the Band, a 360-approach artist development event and We Are Listening's most recent addition to its roster of song contests.

Submit your music to We Are Listening and be part of the next generation of independent artists.
