Songwriting Competitions


We Are Listening was founded in 2004 to provide career-oriented opportunities for performing artists, song writers and lyricists, through exclusive music marketing campaigns and songwriting competitions. In 2005, we established our first of a series of five international songwriting competitions which, to this day, attract independent song writers and music performers from over 50 nations and have resulted in numerous commercial success stories. Today, We Are Listening is regarded as one of the leading independent music companies for unsigned talent and our songwriting competitions have set a new market standard.

Our network of music professionals, including renowned song writers, label executives, new media entrepreneurs, artist managers, and booking agents, converges with our boutique-sized staff of savvy music marketers and song writing experts. With that, our songwriting competitions have become a music industry tour de force and an unwavering influence on the future of many international acts.

Our selection of songwriting competitions include The Singer/Songwriter Awards, World of Music Awards, New Music Video Awards, Lyric Writer Awards, and Breaking the Band, each catering to a different branch of the current music business. Winners of our songwriting competitions have gone on to sign with record labels, Nashville publishers, management, and reputable booking agents.

Armed with a 38-member panel of judges, We Are Listening’s songwriting competitions are the premier independent artist opportunity for song writers and performers of every music genre, background, and territory.
