Are you a songwriter or performer who would like a chance to share your work with the world and maybe earn a little cash in the process? This contest is definitely for you! We're looking for original songs that share the Whizolosophy themes, and we want to hear yours.
This is a contest that will feature complete songs, not just lyrics, sheet music, and such. We want songwriters to write lyrics and tune, perform that piece, record it and pass it along for us to consider. Our panel of independent judges will be assessing songs in their entirety, including originality, artistic merit and craft.
The best songs feature a great structure that matches with a strong melody, lyrics and overall performance. More than that, though, they connect with the listener – they create a reaction, generate emotion, fix themselves in the memory and call people to action.
We recognize that not everyone has a studio on hand, so record your composition to the best of your ability with whatever equipment you have available.
Play us a song and knock our socks off!
