Song Writing Competition


We Are Listening has brought together some of the music industry’s most influential professionals, from label executives to multi-platinum selling songwriters, to form the most prominent song writing contest panel of judges for The Singer/Songwriter Awards.

26 judges have been charged with the task of listening, evaluating, and challenging independent performing artists, bands, songwriters and lyricists, in an all-encompassing international song writing competition that, since 2005, resulted in note-worthy success stories and unprecedented music industry opportunities. Past winners have gone on to sign publishing deals, secure licensing contracts, place their music on television shows, and achieve significant uplifts in record sales and radio airplay.

Setting the highest possible standard in artist development and music marketing, We Are Listening has awarded song writing competition winners invaluable, career-oriented prizes, including production weekends in London, England; songwriting retreats in Stockholm, Sweden; college radio promotion management in the US, public relations representation, tour booking services; creative services such as record mixing and mastering; CD duplication; and more.

Attracting the most determined independent artists, bands, songwriters, and lyricists from over 50 countries, The Singer/Songwriter Awards is the only international song writing competition with a 360-degree approach to artist development, artist promotion, and new media & music marketing.
