Show Me the Music Songwriting Contest 2012

About This Opportunity

Welcome to our 2012 International “Show Me the Music” songwriting contest. This contest is all about giving you, the songwriter, a once in a lifetime opportunity. We are excited about finding our 5th Grand Prize Winner this year and we look forward to hearing your original songs. All genres are welcome!

You may ask yourself, “Why should I enter the Show Me the Music songwriting contest?”

Since our contest is still fairly new, we receive far less entries than some of the other major songwriting contests. Although we only had a little over 1,000 songs entered last year, we are still offering the same huge prizes you might find when entering contests with 15,000-25,000 plus entries.

We do not run your music through an algorithm machine to find out what a computer says is a great song! Show Me the Music takes great pride in having real people listen to each song entered. Songs are judged on melody, lyrics, song structure, and originality. Entries are not judged on production.

With that being said, this year’s Grand Prize Winner will have a difficult decision to make…..$10,000 cash, or…. $3,000 cash and a Recording Session in Music City, Nashville, TN. If you win, you choose the prize!

How does the contest work?

Our contest will run in three phases. In each phase, we will award a winner. You will want to enter as soon as possible for an opportunity to win these early awards and prizes.
– Phase 1 will end March 31st
– Phase 2 will end May 31st
– Phase 3 will end in June 31st

Phase 1 and 2 winners will receive $250.00 U.S., an award certificate, a Show Me the Music t-shirt, and a featured spot on our website. They will also automatically advance to the top finalists for a shot at winning the overall grand prize.

Phase 3 will award the overall Grand Prize Winner with their choice of Grand Prize Package A or B.

What are the 2 choices for the Grand Prize Winner?

A) Cash Prize Package of $10,000:
We have noticed that some of those who have entered in the past already have an amazing recording of their original song. All they need is some cash to get the tour on the road, buy new equipment, pay off some bills, fund a promotion, or just have a fatter wallet. Prize Package A was designed for these people. Copy Cats Media ( is also manufacturing and donating 500 packaged cd’s of the winning song! If that is what you are looking for, then this contest is for you. Plus much more!

B) Recording Session Prize Package + $3,000 Cash:

What if you don’t have a high quality recording of your song or connections in the music business? We will provide that and more if you win. If our Winner chooses the Recording Session Prize Package, we will set them up with 3 nights stay in Nashville, TN, $3,000 to use towards airfare and spending money, a meet and great with top Producers, A-list Musicians, publishers, songwriters, and song-pluggers for major labels. This package also includes a recording session at The Castle recording studio in Franklin, TN with world renowned producer Rob Feaster. We will bring the song to life as our winner records with the same musicians who are on today’s #1 radio hits! Copy Cats Media ( generously offered to manufacture 500 cd’s of the winning song.

We look forward to hearing your original music and wish you the best in the contest! You can’t win if you don’t enter. Now, get those songs ready and Show Me the Music!
